In September 1962, the Olympia School District founded the current college as Olympia Vocational Technical Institute (OVTI). In 1967, the passage of the Community College Act presented a decision for OVTI: stay with the Olympia School District or join the state community college system. That choice led to the institute merging into District 12 with the long-established Centralia College. The early 1980s brought growth to the college’s mission, scope, and physical setting. It offered its first Associate of Arts degree in 1982.
