The College was established in 1975 by the Ministry of Education to prepare students in advanced level courses. This role was later expanded to include upgrading, technical/vocational, and professional courses.
Currently, the institution operates three campuses. The main campus is on the site of the old Servite Convent just outside the town of Brown 's Town. It rests on approximately 32 acres of lush, green, gently sloping land, 8 miles south of Runaway Bay , and approximately 24 miles west of Moneague in St. Ann . The second campus, known as the Wesley Campus, is nestled in the cool hills of St. Ann's Bay, on the site of the old Wesley College on Gordon Tennant Road . The third campus is located on the site of the old Kaiser Administrative offices, with a panoramic view of the town and harbour, in Bridgewater, Discovery Bay .
The Wesley Campus is the home of the first nursing school in the Northern region of the island, offering the generic Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing. The Discovery Bay campus, also known as the Technical Campus, offers Certificate and Diploma courses in Engineering Science, Electronics and Computing Systems, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration, and Applied Information Technology. All other academic, professional and technical/vocational courses are offered at the main campus.
Brown's Town Community College is committed to being a worldclass institution providing quality education and excellent service to all our customers.
