River Parishes Community College started in 1999 at the Sorrento Firehouse. Since that time, we have grown from barely 100 students to nearly 3,000. We are now located in Gonzales with two new state-of-the-art buildings. We are currently undergoing a merger that will expand our campus locations to Reserve and Plaquemines.

With our campus expansion, we now serve the entire six-parish River Region. Our primary service areas include the the parishes of Ascension, Assumption, Livingston, St. James, St. John the Baptist, St. Charles, and Iberville.

Our campus sites are centrally located within the robust petrochemical industry. We have partnered with many of the local companies in our region to offer industry based programs where our students can receive the hands-on training needed to excel in their chosen paths. The video playlist above documents the lives and paths of four students who found direction and training at River Parishes Community College. Take a moment to listen to these four stories to see how RPCC helped them change their lives.

For those students interested in attending on of Louisiana’s public Universities, we offer associate degree programs designed to fulfill the first two years of most bachelor degree programs.
