Troy's educational needs are met by a modern, county-wide school system, which offers our children excellent educational opportunities. Elementary students attend either Troy Elementary School (K-2) or Page Street Elementary (3-5), while middle and high schools students travel only a short distance to attend West Middle School and West Montgomery High School, which are located just outside the town limits. The Montgomery County Schools are considered to be progressive, with strong technical/vocational programs offered alongside a strenuous academic program.
Montgomery Community College (MCC), a post-secondary institution serving this area of the state, is also located in Troy. MCC is located on Page Street, just off NC 134. The college has gained national acclaim for its specialty programs in areas such as gunsmithing, taxidermy, and pottery. In recent years, MCC has been approved to offer an LPN program, and a one-year college transfer program. The continuing education department of the college meets a variety of community needs by offering in-plant training for business and industry as well as fire, law enforcement, and rescue training. The department further offers personal enrichment programs of interest to the county's citizens.
Montgomery County also has an award-winning county public library system, headquartered in Troy.
