School Notes

  • Vance-Granville Community College was chartered in 1969 as Vance County Technical Institute by the North Carolina General Assembly. The college began by offering technical, vocational and continuing education courses to residents of Vance County. In 1972, Vance and Granville counties pooled their resources to support a $2 million bond referendum for a larger, more permanent facility to educate their citizens. The result was the construction and subsequent opening of the new Vance-Granville Community College campus in 1976 on an 83-acre tract in Vance County, midway between Henderson and Oxford. The Main Campus of Vance-Granville Community College is located midway between Oxford and Henderson on an 83-acre tract of land off Interstate 85. The majority of classes are taught on Main Campus, but a number of students attend classes also at South Campus between Butner and Creedmoor, Franklin Campus in Louisburg, and Warren Campus in Warrenton. Today, the main campus, picturesque with a lake and attractive landscaping, boasts eight permanent buildings that include a student services complex, civic center and daycare unit. Along with administrative and faculty offices, auditorium, student lounge and learning resources center, these facilities provide 36 classrooms, 10 shops and 20 labs in which students may train in 35-plus curriculum programs, as well as extension, economic development, continuing education, and small business classes. Its total value is approximately $24.3 million.
