A history full of achievements.
A future filled with promise.

Forsyth Tech has been serving the citizens of Forsyth and Stokes counties since 1960. We began as the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Industrial Education Center, offering vocational instruction and training in skilled trades.

Today, as Forsyth Technical Community College, we still offer those programs, as well as college transfer and two-year degree programs, corporate training, continuing education, personal enrichment classes and much more.



Forsyth Technical Community College advances student success through excellence in learning,
completion, equity, and post-graduation outcomes.


Forsyth Technical Community College is a catalyst for equitable economic mobility, empowering
lives and transforming communities.


At Forsyth Technical Community College, equity is grounded in a culture of belonging. We will
intentionally design the college experience to ensure that each learner receives what they need to
be successful.


In order to implement our mission, Forsyth Tech employees are guided by the following core values:

EXCELLENCE – We hold high expectations of our students and of ourselves and are ceaselessly

that hamper learning.
