Schoolcraft College is a comprehensive community-based college located in Livonia, Michigan, United States with a satellite campus in Garden City, Michigan. The mission of the College is to provide a transformational learning experience designed to increase the capacity of individuals and groups to achieve intellectual, social, and economic goals.
Schoolcraft College was established in 1961. Originally named Northwest Wayne County Community College, the name of the college was changed because of the length. On February 6, 1963, the college officially changed the name to Schoolcraft College, after an American geologist Henry Schoolcraft. The school's name omits the word "community", both to keep the name short, and to avoid the assumption on the part of the public that the school is located in or associated with Schoolcraft County.

Schoolcraft College Athletic program is a part of the National Junior College Athletic Association via the Michigan Community College Athletic Association and the athletic teams' name is the Ocelots.
