- Sauk Valley Community College was created by the citizens of Public Community College District #506 through public referendum in June 1965. Since that time, Sauk has expanded its programs to provide opportunities not only in the traditional transfer areas, but also in vocational-technical, adult and continuing education, community service, and career education. In recent years, Sauk's commitment to the public has included intercollegiate athletics and cultural offerings. Sauk Valley Community College provides a comprehensive program of student services, including academic, career and personal counseling, financial aid, student support services, job placement assistance, co-curricular activities, performing arts opportunities and intercollegiate athletics. These services, in combination with instructional services, increase educational access for all and contribute to student success and enrichment. The Sauk Child Care Center offers daytime care and educational activities on a fee basis for children whose parents are employed by the College or enrolled in classes at the College. Professional, trained, child care workers and SVCC's Human Services curriculum students are employed to supervise and operate the facilty, which is licensed by the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services. The College first received accreditation status in March 1972 with the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools which has since changed its name to The Higher Learning Commission. In 1992, and again in 2002, the College earned the maximum ten-year accreditation.
