The College facilitates valuable learning relationships that inspire students to realize their educational and professional futures.

During the mid-1950s, demand for higher education on the South Shore, and Quincy in particular, led to the creation of the Citizen’s Committee appointed to study the feasibility of establishing a community college. This committee recommended that a community college should exist and as early as 1956, the first college-level courses are offered. In May of 1958, College Courses, Inc., a non-profit charitable organization, was officially formed to help further higher education on the South Shore. In the Fall of that same year, the first freshman class began at what will later be known as Quincy College. Less than five years later, Quincy College was empowered to award the Associate in Arts and the Associate in Science degrees. In 1991, the school founded the Plymouth campus located thirty minutes south of Quincy in downtown Plymouth, Massachusetts.
