About Piedmont Community College
Piedmont Community College resulted from the foresight and dedication of a group of progressive-minded Person County citizens. They recognized the need for a local institution of higher education to offer job training and educational opportunities to high school graduates and other adults.
A Board of Trustees was appointed in 1969 and Person County Technical Institute opened in 1970. As the College grew and the service expanded to include Caswell County in 1985, the name was changed to Piedmont Community College (PCC).
In the early days, classes were held throughout Person County. What we know now as the Person County Campus was established in the late 70’s on donated land. Since that time, PCC has grown to include the Caswell County Campus, Business Development and Entrepreneurship Center (which also includes the Small Business Center and a business incubator), Educational Opportunity Center, Workforce Training Center, Public Safety Training Center, and a partnership with the Kirby Cultural Arts Complex.
PCC is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) and offers over 30 curricula, including unique programs such as Electrical Power Production Technology, Digital Effects and Animation Technology, Film and Video Production Technology, Gunsmithing, and Associate in Fine Arts. In addition, the College’s Continuing Education programs work closely with businesses and industries, offering short-term training to establish a skilled workforce.
In fall 2017, Person Early College for Innovation and Leadership (PECIL) launched as a new partnership between PCC and Person County Schools. The College also hosts a five-star daycare on campus. This pre-school based center is available for students, employees, and the general public.
