Flathead Valley Community College promotes excellence in lifelong learning by offering two-year college programs, the first two years of a four-year college degree, occupational training, and opportunities that enhance the cultural, social, and economic well-being of our students and communities. In the 1960's, residents of the Flathead Valley recognized a need for localized higher education. Glacier College, in conjunction with Whitworth College of Spokane, provided some educational services over the course of several years. In 1984-85 the College added the Glacier Institute program in Glacier Park and the Lincoln County Campus which provides classes to the residents of Lincoln County. These programs are fully accredited by the Northwest Association of Schools and Colleges. FVCC hosts intercollegiate sport teams for men and women in soccer and cross-country running.
