Treasure Valley Community College opened in 1962, holding afternoon and evening classes at Ontario High School. Since that simple beginning, TVCC has grown to 14 major buildings, including the Laura Moore Cunningham Science Center, which opened its doors in 2013.
A caring staff and faculty serve more than 7,500 students annually, providing excellent, affordable educational opportunities in a relaxed, pleasant rural setting on 90 beautifully manicured acres.
Students at TVCC have easy access to shopping areas, movie theaters, restaurants, and a number of cultural and recreational facilities. Ontario maintains a small-town atmosphere while serving as a commercial, recreational, medical, and industrial center for Malheur County and the surrounding area. The city is located in the Treasure Valley, adjacent to the Snake River, which serves as the Idaho border. Boise is 55 miles away and brings a cosmopolitan flavor to the valley. The area is well known for outdoor activities. Students can easily drive to excellent skiing, hunting, fishing, and hiking sites.
