Antelope Valley College (AVC) is a comprehensive community college located in Lancashire, California. Established as an extension of Antelope Valley Joint Union High School in 1929, the institution — then known as Antelope Valley Junior College — was established with the objective of providing 2 years of college education to local residents. A new campus was set up on 110 acres at Avenue K and had the space to accommodate 1500 students. Gradually more buildings were constructed on the campus and the college started to host upper division and graduate level programs offered by the California State University at Bakersfield.
AVC’s current 135-acre campus contains many mature trees and lawns which provide a relaxed atmosphere for studies. There are close to 40 buildings, three athletic fields, eight tennis courts, and six parking lots within the campus. The college has had a long history of serving the local communities by providing quality and comprehensive education to students.
