Napa Valley College is part of the California Community College System, serving Napa County. The current campus opened in 1965, but after the initial construction, no buildings were added for more than two decades. When a bond issue was passed with strong community support in 2002, allowing the first campus expansion in nearly a quarter century, funds were committed to building two structures that would anchor both ends of campus, a library to the south and a new performing arts center to the north. The Napa Valley College Performing Arts Center site at the north edge of campus takes full advantage of the picturesque views of the valley and nearby mountain ranges.
