Piedmont Virginia Community College is a 2-year institution serving Charlottesville and six surrounding counties. PVCC is home to 12 academic departments conferring degrees and certificates in programs such as Web Technologies and Retail Management. In addition, PVCC features a number of Service Learning classes that combine coursework with community service projects related to the topic at hand. Among its student services offerings, Great Expectations at PVCC provides counseling and mentorship to its former foster care youth population.
The Professors at Piedmont are top-notch and love to get to know their students. I have had eight professors and enjoyed them all. The great teachers in combination with services like the Writing, Testing, and Math Centers make Piedmont a great college.

Piedmont Virginia Community College was the best thing that could have happened to me out of high school. The staff (teachers and otherwise) are beyond helpful in teaching me how to succeed here at Piedmont, in the future at a four year university, and beyond. The education here is incredible seeing that a lot of the staff splits their time between PVCC and the University of Virginia.
