Sierra Vista Campus
Cochise College classes have been offered in the Sierra Vista/Fort Huachuca area since the 1960s. By 1972, college instructors were teaching courses in temporary buildings at Buena High School. In 1974, the Andrea Cracchiolo family donated 40 acres of land east of Sierra Vista for the future site of the Sierra Vista Campus, which opened in 1978. To meet the needs of a growing student population, ground was broken on the Andrea Cracchiolo Library and the science building in September 1994. Today, the campus provides a diverse curriculum of general education, transfer, and occupational programs, including computer science, nursing, business, welding, and manufacturing engineering. It is located in close proximity to apartments, shopping, dining, a university and Buena High School.
When it opened in September 1964, the Douglas Campus represented the pioneering spirit of a new college. The site between Douglas and Bisbee was selected as the most practical for serving the major population centers of the time. Today, this traditional campus is home to a number of academic buildings that house classrooms, faculty and staff offices, and computer labs, as well as a full-service library, an aviation program with its own airport, residence halls, athletic facilities, and a cafeteria. It is often considered the most scenic Cochise College location.
