Las Positas College is located 40 miles southeast of San Francisco, amid one of California's fastest-growing regions for business, science, and technology. Gently rolling hills and picturesque vineyards provide the scenic background for the College's 147-acre campus.
Las Positas College began as an extension centre of Chabot College in 1963, offering 24 classes and enrolling 810 students at Livermore High School and two other sites. By 1965, the program had expanded and moved to Granada High School in Livermore. It subsequently grew to include Amador and Dublin High Schools as well. The District purchased the Livermore site that same year, intending to develop a comprehensive community college. On March 31, 1975, “Valley Campus” opened as the Livermore Education Center of Chabot College.
