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, Reserve, and Plaquemines, La.
With our campus expansion, we now serve the entire seven-parish River Region. Our primary service areas include 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. For those students interested in attending one of Louisiana’s public Universities, we offer associate degree programs designed to fulfill the first two years of most bachelor degree programs.
