Established in 1966, NCC was the pilot project for Iowa’s Community College System. At first the College offered three vocational programs to students representing 20 high schools in Lyon, O’Brien, Osceola and Sioux counties. On February 10, 1971, Merged Area IV was expanded when two community districts in Cherokee County requested that they be included with the area.

The North Central Association of Colleges and Schools granted candidacy for accreditation status in 1976 and accreditation status in 1980, which was expanded in 1988 to include the Associate of Arts and Science programs implemented in the fall of 1988. The College received 10 years of accreditation in 1994 and again in 2004.

Sanborn Christian School officially began as an incorporated and approved school by the State Board of Education in 1917. However, prior to the organization of this Christian day school, summer classes were held beginning in 1914 in the Sanborn Christian Reformed Church. In 1917 an addition was buit on the south side of hte church to serve as a classroom. In 1918, it was necessary to have another classroom so a basement room was used for this purposed. This arrangement continued for three years.

A Lutheran School... Picture this: a place where people rejoice in life and live under the gracious goodness of our loving God. A place where children are touched in ways that last forever. Zion-St. John develops the characteristics necessary for success as a citizen and as a Christian in adult life. Children in the elementary years are helped to develop values and to learn the basics for successive years of education. At this level, we believe providing a quality education is vital, especially from a Christian value-centered point of view.

Zion-St. John's roots stem back to the 1800's. St. John Lutheran Church in Germantown founded its school in 1879. Twenty-five years later Zion Lutheran in Paullina made the same commitment for its students. In 1976 the two schools consolidated to form Zion-St John, yet the education received is anything but old fashioned. A computer lab used by every student K-8, internet access, a music program including all grade levels and athletic competition are among the opportunities Zion-St John gives its students. But most important of all, Zion-St John offers a Christian atmosphere that allows us to address all the student's needs: intellectual, emotional, & spiritual.
