2017 Student Success Scorecard

Victor Valley Community College

Victor Valley Community College, established in 1961, is located 90 miles north of Los Angeles in the High Desert of Southern California.  A wide transformation is taking place at the college due to the passage of local bond Measure JJ. The bond has been used to eliminate past debt, upgrade the college’s main campus infrastructure, add new facilities and improve old ones, and construct an off-campus site known as the Regional Public Safety Training Center, used to train future firefighters, paramedics, police and correctional officers.  The college continues to look for innovative ways to use renewable energy, including the construction of a one-megawatt solar power generating plant, and plans for two solar-powered parking structures in the near future.  For 50 years, thousands of High Desert residents have made the journey to Victor Valley College and gone on to become contributing members of society.  From their ranks are civic leaders, business people, service industry personnel, medical providers, first responders, and people of all walks of life who are contributors to the health and welfare of our community.
