Rancho Cucamonga Breaks Ground!

August 17, 2012

SJVC is bringing its career education and training programs to Ontario. Currently in Rancho Cucamonga, this SJVC campus is making the 3.2 mile move to better serve its students and increase community awareness of its presence.

The new campus, scheduled for build completion in August 2013, is located at 4580 Ontario Mills Parkway. At the intersection of Freeways 15 and 10, it will provide greater visibility and easier access for students and visitors. “The freeway frontage property will allow us to move from a low visibility area to a very high visibility advantage,” says Steve Perry, SJVC’s Director of Real Estate Development.

The new 2-story, 50,000 sq.ft. building will sit on 5 ½ acres and provide 400 parking stalls to better accommodate the student population, staff, faculty and visitors. SJVC’s campus structure will comply with all green standards and requirements, which will ensure that equipment and materials will enjoy more efficient energy consumption.

“Our new building design is beautiful and places a particular emphasis on student gathering places,” says Sherril Hein, Campus Director. “Our indoor student center will provide student study, lounging and eating areas and our large outside patio is perfect for single or group gatherings,” she says.

“We have a lot to bring to our new community,” says Mrs. Hein. “We have excellent, degree-granting programs, are WASC (Western Association of Schools and Colleges) accredited, and will provide a new resource for those seeking higher education and career training, that they may not have had before,” she says.

The City of Ontario will also benefit from their new business tenant, as will local real estate brokers, contractors, future students and employers who hire well-qualified graduates. “The City of Ontario has been very welcoming to us and eager to have us be part of the community,” says Hein, whose campus has been an Ontario Chamber of Commerce member for many years.
