Welcome to the website of the Oakhurst Community College Center! We are a satellite campus of Reedley College located just 20 minutes away from the south entrance to some of the most breathtaking sights in the world, Yosemite National Park, and just minutes away from the Sierra National Forest.
We provide opportunities and access to higher education in Eastern Madera County. The campus currently serves Oakhurst, Mariposa County, Coarsegold, North Fork and the surrounding communities with over 75 courses in a variety of study areas.
At Oakhurst Community College Center (OCCC), students have the opportunity to receive an affordable, quality college education right here in our own local mountain community. Facilities include traditional classrooms, distance learning, computer lab, science lab, and student success center. Day and evening classes, traditional face-to-face, online, hybrid, and two-way video conference distance learning are also offered.
Our mission statement is simple: “We motivate and inspire students to succeed.” It follows right along with the mission statement of our friends at the Oakhurst Chamber of Commerce: “To promote and support the economic vitality while honoring and preserving the unique lifestyles of our mountain communities.” We want our students to feel like OCCC fits into the community perfectly, while also providing the right educational options that blend in with the needs of our area.
In the fall of 2021, we will open the doors to our permanent campus, which will be located on 30 acres north of Highway 49 in Oakhurst. We are extremely excited to bring this facility to the community, which will provide more opportunities and increase classroom size and space.
Thank you for considering us. If you’re already part of our family, I hope you’re enjoying your experience! Let us know if there’s anything we can do for you. That’s why we’re here.
