Patrick Henry Community College is one of 23 community colleges in Virginia and was founded in 1962 as a two-year branch of the University of Virginia's School of General Studies. PHCC became an autonomous two-year college of the university two years later. The college enrolled its first students in the old Northside Elementary School in Martinsville. It moved to its present campus in the fall of 1969 with the completion of the administration building. The Learning Resource Center (LRC) was completed in the spring of 1971, and the college became part of the Virginia Community College System on July 1, 1971. Serving Martinsville, Henry County, and Patrick County, PHCC is a comprehensive open-door institution, accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) to award associate degrees.
Patrick Henry offers many associate degree programs, certificate programs, and career studies programs, which include a variety of non-traditional programs such as industry-recognized certifications, developmental and transitional programs, and personal enrichment courses.
