Pierce College, founded in 1947, provides opportunities for occupational training, transfer education and life-long learning. It is one of the colleges of the Los Angeles Community College District on 426 acres in the western San Fernando Valley. True to its beginnings more than 60 years ago as an agricultural college, Pierce still maintains large sections of tillable and range land preserved as an enclave within a suburban environment. A 226-acre farm spans the west side of campus, featuring an equestrian center and small herds of cattle, sheep and goats. Pierce prepares its students for academic success after transferring to a university.
