On June 17, 1921, the Board of Trustees of the State College for Colored Students, later known as Delaware State College, approved a resolution recommending the establishment of a high school for Negro students on its campus. This was the second such institution in the state, and the first outside of Wilmington. Many of the classes were held in the Dupont Building, also known as the Practice School This building was named for Pierre S. Dupont, a Delaware philanthropist who was instrumental in funding the construction of Negro schools throughout the state. With the establishment of a comprehensive high school for Negro students in each county, the State College High School was closed in 1952.
