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.

In 1989, the college was identified as one of several in South Carolina with high default rates on federally guaranteed student loans.
