HCC's story began in 1946 as the city-sponsored Holyoke Junior College, a fledgling institution that lacked many of the resources traditionally associated with colleges. Nevertheless, the school flourished, thanks to the perseverance of its small but dedicated staff. Holyoke Community College's mission is "to serve the Pioneer Valley by providing comprehensive, high-quality educational opportunities that are responsive to community needs and meet the intellectual, esthetic, and practical needs of a diverse student body."
HCC offers associate's degrees and numerous certificate options, as well as outstanding faculty, small class size, flexible day, evening, Saturday, and online classes, and comprehensive academic support.
