Denmark Technical College is a two-year college in Denmark, South Carolina. The college primarily serves Bamberg, Barnwell and Allendale counties in South Carolina.

The school, which is state-supported, was established in 1947 as the South Carolina Area Trade School to serve African-American students in the region. Mr. Lorry H.

The school's motto was "He Who Hath a Trade Hath an Estate"; its sports teams were known as "the SCATS". Alumni of the S C Area Trade School have established successful businesses across the United States. Nationally known comedian J. Anthony Brown, who received a degree in Tailoring, is a distinguished graduate.

The current president is Dr. Joann Boyd-Scotland. The most recent past presidents were Dr. Michael Townsend,Sr., formerly vice president of Milwaukee Area Technical College’s Mequon Campus in Wisconsin. and Dr. John Waddell, who departed in August 2009.
