The Community College of Beaver County (also known as CCBC) is a community college located in Beaver County, Pennsylvania. The school includes approximately 3,000 students from in and around Beaver County. While CCBC is a community college and only offers two-year degrees and various certification courses, CCBC is known nationally for its aviation and nursing programs. CCBC has been ranked as the most affordable choice for higher education in Beaver County. CCBC is also accredited by the Commission on Higher Education of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.

History

CCBC was formed in 1966 and was originally located in Freedom, Pennsylvania. The college originally leased floors of the Freedom National Bank building and 17 vacant storefronts for classrooms and offices.

CCBC moved to Center Township, Beaver County where it created its own campus in 1971. In 1976, CCBC added a building called ‘The Golden Dome’ which is a geodesic recreational facility that houses the athletic department and showcases local community events. This building is no doubt the most recognizable symbol of CCBC.

In 1990, the school created an aviation building to house its acclaimed aviation program in Chippewa Township, Beaver County. The school built a new library in 1997 that also provides services to the Beaver County community.

Recently, CCBC became county-sponsored and saw a dramatic increase in enrollment. Many local community members and alumni recognize CCBC as an outstanding learning institution.
