Education

Top Notch Schools

Sierra Vista is home to one of the top community colleges in the nation, the headquarters of a major branch campus of University of Arizona and a campus of the largest and oldest aviation school in the country. Add a varied selection of K-12 options that significantly exceed state averages in performance, and Sierra Vista offers everything students need to succeed.

However, Cochise College is far from the only choice for higher education, with Wayland Baptist University, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, and University of Arizona South, rounding out a pipeline that enables students to pursue a variety of degrees and professional certifications without leaving town. That pipeline starts with a robust offering of K-12 schools, which significantly outperform their peers in the state.

With that said, Sierra Vista is looking for additional opportunities to provide our K-12 and higher learning students with additional opportunities, particularly in the STEM fields. With our interconnectivity, available buildings, and terrific quality of life, Sierra Vista offers unlimited opportunities for educational institutions looking to expand.
