When you choose Paradise Valley Community College, you are choosing excellence in higher education.
For more than 30 years, PVCC has offered quality educational programs to the community in which we live and work. Whether your goal is to prepare to transfer to the university, enter the workforce or to simply continue your lifelong learning, PVCC is the right place to start. As one of 10 colleges in the Maricopa County Community College District (MCCCD), PVCC has created a learning environment that promotes inclusion, positive social change, and community engagement for residents of northeast Phoenix and northern Maricopa County, including Cave Creek, Carefree and North Scottsdale. In 2009, we opened our second campus – Black Mountain – serving residents in the northern outskirts of the valley.
We know that it’s not just about what you learn, but how you learn it. As part of the nationally recognized Learning-centered College movement, you will experience active and engaged learning, opportunities to enhance your critical, creative and entrepreneurial thinking, and apply learning to meaningful societal issues. Our goal is to enrich learning through relevancy and rigor, develop strong leaders and prepare students to have a lasting positive impact on our community. At PVCC you will develop your full potential.
