About the Bedford Center

In January 2005, Central Virginia Community College began offering classes to the residents of the city and county of Bedford at a new, state-of-the-art facility in the Bedford Center for Business. In 2011, we offered 136 classes to over 544 students. Delivery systems include traditional classroom instruction as well as Web-based/Internet courses, hybrid courses, Blackboard Collaborate (real-time web-conferencing) courses*, and specialized training in workforce development for business and industry.

An academically accelerated Early College program is also offered. Qualified high school juniors complete their last two years of high school at the Bedford Center and earn an Associate Degree in General Studies at the same time as their high school diplomas. This program is also offered to qualified home-schooled students.

In addition to classes, the Bedford Center is a full service facility offering admissions and enrollment, assistance with financial aid, degree and transfer advising, and payment processing. Assessment services available are COMPASS placement testing, Work Keys assessments, and career and interest inventories.

Bedford Center Building The center also has a community meeting room which seats up to 85 people and is available for technology based seminars and conferences at no charge to government and non-profit groups. The room may be scheduled for use by other groups with a fee.

We offer strong customer service in Bedford and with support services from the main campus in Lynchburg are ready to serve the community and to assist students in achieving their educational goals.
