For the first time in the history of Central Baptist College, enrollment has topped the 850 mark.

According to a report released by the Office of the Registrar on Friday, overall fall enrollment officially closed at 858, up 116 students (a 16-percent increase) over the fall 2010 enrollment of 742. Final enrollment figures include a 19-percent increase in traditional student enrollment with 558 students and 300 students in the PACE (Professional Adult College Education) and online degree programs, which is a 10-percent increase.

“This is our sixth consecutive year to post a record fall enrollment,” CBC president Terry Kimbrow said. “This kind of growth brings numerous challenges — housing, parking and financial resources to mention a few. But, I welcome these problems and, in fact, have anticipated them.” 

Vision 2020: A Miracle in the Making is a 10-year master plan that is guiding growth at the institution. The plan is based on a future enrollment of 2,020 students and includes 10 major construction projects in the next 10 years.
