Welcome parents and family!

Whether you’re new to the Blackburn College community or a proud parent of a returning student, we are happy you are here!

Founded in Carlinville, Illinois, Blackburn College offers a traditional college experience, and so much more. Not only do students get the benefits of life in an easy-going small town, but they have all the exploration, engaged academics, and the community and activities of college. But wait, there’s more. At Blackburn, students also get real-life, ready-for-the-workforce skills. These types of leadership skills immediately apply to nearly any job situation after graduation. The running start they give you to the working world is invaluable and unique to Blackburn.

Below are a list of quick references and resources to help you guide and support your student through this journey.
