ACC 50th Anniversary logo

Join us as we celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the founding of Arapahoe Community College. We will host events, activities, commemorative displays, promotions, contests and memorabilia giveaways throughout the 2014-15 academic year in honor of this occasion.  The celebration of ACC’s golden anniversary will culminate in May 2015 with the annual commencement ceremony and the ACC Foundation Gala.

Founded in 1965 through a grassroots movement by members of the Littleton community, ACC was the first community college to open in the Denver area.  What began as Arapahoe Junior College with 550 students has grown into a vibrant community college serving over 22,000 credit, non-credit and online students.  ACC offers nearly 100 degree and certificate programs and over 200 online classes.  Our mission is to provide innovative and responsive educational and economic opportunities in an accessible, inclusive environment that promotes success for students, employees and the community.

Keep up with the latest news and announcements right here as we prepare to celebrate the growth, accomplishments and history of Arapahoe Community College.
