About Us
The Kaskaskia College Nashville Education Center is located in Nashville, Illinois. The Education center is housed on the northern edge of Nashville - just one block west of Illinois Route 127 at 17869 Exchange Avenue. The hometown of the Nashville Education Center is conveniently located in Southern Illinois, only 52 miles from St. Louis, MO with a population of approximately 3500.

The Nashville Education Center opened its doors in August 2003 and has continued to thrive ever since. In the new facility, the center expanded from a 3600 square foot rented building with four classrooms, to the state of the art 11,500 square foot new building with a computer lab housing 24 stations and an open computer lab with eight stations available for not only the students but the public. A commons area has been added where students can meet, study and have snacks. To meet the ever ending need for CNAs, a nurse assistant classroom has been added along with a biology/wet lab, four large classroom, a conference room and an ITV classroom with Distant Learning equipment which allows students to take a class without the extra travel time. The Center has two business incubator offices in order to help expand opportunities for potential new businesses in the county.

The next time you are visiting the sites in beautifully historic Nashville, please stop by and say hello to the staff at the Nashville Education Center. They are always open to your thoughts and suggestions as to what can be done better to serve the residents of the Washington County Community.
