Message from the President - Central Virginia Community College


John Capps

President of CVCC
Welcome to Central Virginia Community College (CVCC)! Whether you are seeking an affordable start toward a bachelor's degree or the technical skills to advance your career, CVCC stands ready to help you achieve your goals and enrich your life.

I invite you to explore this Web site to learn more about the many ways in which CVCC can meet your needs. We have a program of study for everyone: college-transfer curricula that guarantee admission to four-year institutions, career and technical programs to prepare you for employment, and continuing education courses for personal enrichment and professional development. Best of all, you can pursue your studies at a time that suits you at a variety of locations - at our main campus in Lynchburg or at one of our off-site centers in Amherst, Appomattox, and Bedford. Because we match our mission to your needs, you can take classes during the day, at night, or even online.

Listed below are just a few of the many programs and services we offer to help our students succeed:

  • 5 associate's degree programs that allow our graduates to seamlessly transfer to over 30 Virginia colleges and universities through guaranteed admission agreements. CVCC graduates who take advantage of these agreements will save thousands of dollars as they work toward a bachelor's degree.
  • 80 associates degrees and career certificates that provide our graduates with credentials for entry or further advancement in the workplace. Our career and technical programs provide cutting-edge training for Region 2000 employment needs.
  • An extensive program of professional and personal enrichment activities. From our Summer Career Academies for middle and high school students to a wide variety of continuing education classes such as contractor licensure, motorcycle training, and computer skills, we has a program for everyone.
  • A comprehensive array of support services to help you reach your goals. Financial aid, academic and career counseling, free tutoring, and college success skills are just a few of the services we provide to support you every step of the way.

What may not be apparent from this Web site is the most distinctive feature of CVCC: a community of caring faculty, staff, and administrators who dedicate themselves to helping every student succeed. For that reason, I invite you to call or visit us to learn more about our outstanding academic programs and student services. We can even help you identify financial aid and scholarship opportunities that place a college degree within your reach. Once you visit us, you will soon discover that you are surrounded by supportive people who care about your education, who share your aspirations, and who claim your dreams as their own.

We are CVCC. We are here for you. We are WHERE YOUR FUTURE BEGINS!
