From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Los Angeles Mission College is a two-year community college located in Sylmar neighborhood of Los Angeles in the San Fernando Valley region of Los Angeles, California, United States. It is part of the Los Angeles Community College District. It is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.

History of the College

Los Angeles Mission College is the youngest, and ninth college established in the Los Angeles Community College District. It was first located in high schools, churches, office buildings, shopping centers, and other locations scattered throughout the cities of San Fernando and Sylmar, and opened its doors to the public in February 1975 with approximately twelve hundred students. The graduating class of 1975 consisted of a single student, who had transferred to the college that semester. Within two years, over 3,000 students were taking classes in fifty different disciplines, including Administration of Justice, Business, Chemistry, Chicano Studies, English, Family and Consumer Studies, Geography, Journalism, Microbiology, Real Estate, and Zoology. Sixteen years later, in the summer of 1991, the college moved to its permanent campus, built on 22 acres (89,000 m2) of land in the city of Sylmar. In addition to its academic degrees, Mission College also provides vocational education and training in which students may receive certificates in Child Development, Family and Consumer Studies, Paralegal, Computer Applications, and the like.

With the recent influx of bond and state money, Mission College, will construct, over the next five years, a Child Development Center, a Health, Physical Education, and Fitness Center, a Media Arts Building, Student Services Center, a Family and Consumer Studies Building, and two multi-level parking structures. The College "mission statement" is "Our Mission is your Success".
