History

The college was established in 1945 as Vallejo Junior College. It was part of the Vallejo City Unified School District until 1967, when it established itself as a countywide institution.[2]

Campuses

SCC consists of a main campus and two satellite campuses: one in Vacaville and another in Vallejo. It also uses space at other locations for classes that the three campuses cannot accommodate. The 192-acre (0.78 km2) main campus in Fairfield was completed in 1971; its Vacaville satellite campus was opened shortly after. On September 15, 2007 the satellite campus in Vallejo had opened.[3] In its first year, the college had approximately 5,000 students and the three-campus system as of 2007 has a total of approximately 11,000 students .[2]

The College serves the following communities:

Many graduates of the area's 15 public high schools and three private schools take advantage of the college's educational opportunities.[4]
