The San Juan College was established in 1956, and initially known as New Mexico College of Agriculture and Mechanical Arts.

This college is now one of the most prestigious institutions that welcomes students from across the world with its courses, diplomas and an outstanding faculty. Athletics and extra-curricular activities are also encouraged whole-heartedly along with social responsibility.
