With a population just over 20,000, Clarksdale is a relatively small town located in Coahoma County, Mississippi. Agriculture makes up a large portion of the local economy and the city is known as the home of several popular blues musicians.
Clarksdale is home to nine elementary and secondary schools, as well as one community college located at the north end of town. The city’s only high school, Coahoma Agricultural High School, shares a campus with Coahoma Community College, a two-year community college located just outside the north end of town.
Coahoma Community College resides on a 100-acre campus not far from the Mississippi River. It was established in 1924 Coahoma County Agricultural High School. In 1949, its name was changed to Coahoma Junior College and Agricultural High School. Several years later the school was re-chartered and its name was changed to Coahoma Community College. Today, the college offers two-year Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S) and Associate of Arts (A.A.) degrees in various technical disciplines and academic fields of study.
