Trinity Valley Community College was founded as Henderson County Junior College by a group of Athens, Texas, civic leaders in late 1945 and early 1946. The first classes were conducted in temporary facilities at Athens High School. Since then, the college has opened three campuses in addition to the main campus in Athens: Palestine, Terrell, and Kaufman, Texas. In 1986, the Board of Trustees voted to rename the institution Trinity Valley Community College to better reflect the five county areas our campuses serve. Trinity Valley Community College has a proud heritage of service to our region and continues to support the needs of our community and student body.
TVCC awards associate’s degrees and certificates, several of which can be earned completely online, including transfer degrees and workforce education degrees.
