The community of Seymour supports high quality educational opportunities for all citizens. Whether you are seeking a great public school system or one of the many fine, outstanding parochial schools, you will find it in Seymour.

In August, 2010, the city of Seymour, in collaboration with civic organizations and the public schools, opened the new Jackson County Learning Center (JCLC) to expand educational opportunities for its citizens. Whether hosting classes from some of Indiana’s top universities, bringing college opportunities to our doorstep or tailoring corporate training programs, JCLC is designed to promote life long learning.
