Through scholarship and grants, Williamson's tuition, room and boarding are at no cost to the student; making the college unique in the nation. Special admission consideration is given to those who demonstrate financial need.
Williamson provides students with academic, trade, technical, moral and religious education, and a living environment that fosters our core values of faith, integrity, diligence, excellence, and service.
Commitment to our Heritage
Williamson remains committed to the ideals upon which Isaiah V. Williamson established the college, believing they are as valid and relevant today as when it was founded in 1888.
WE BELIEVE that healthy, able-bodied young men who have learned a good mechanical trade, and who are intellectually and emotionally prepared, honest, frugal, entrepreneurial, temperate, and industrious, are certain to succeed in life, and to become useful and respected members of society.
WE BELIEVE that Judeo-Christian ethics and values help to prepare graduates to be dependable, honest, and productive workers.
Each year approximately 100 students are offered admission to Williamson College of the Trades. Admission is open to all qualifying young men, but special consideration is given to those who come from families of financial need and would otherwise not be able to further their education.
