GBC Pahrump Center graphic

Pahrump, 436 miles south of Elko, is the home of GBC’s newest location, the Pahrump Valley Center (PVC). The PVC is the center for GBC’s offerings in Beatty, Gabbs, Round Mountain, Tonopah and other communities throughout Nye County. The PVC is currently a single building located on the campus of the Pahrump High School and is a joint use high tech center. During the day, high school classes and college classes use the classrooms in the building. When the high school day ends, GBC’s college classes take over all the classrooms. A new 14,000 square foot building to be located on the North edge of Pahrump is in the planning phase with a "hoped for" completion in the future. The completion of the new building with it’s additional laboratory facilities will enable GBC to begin offering additional health and technical courses and degree programs.

The current PVC staff includes a manager and two office staff, three full-time faculty members and over 20 adjunct faculty to coordinate and teach courses and degree programs. The full-time PVC staff is supplemented by nearly 20 part-time computer lab aids, interactive video facilitators, and tutors, plus a full-time advisor/recruiter to help with student advising and plan recruitment trips around Southern Nevada.

Facilities include 15 classrooms, including computer, science, and nursing laboratories.

You are cordially invited to visit the Pahrump Valley Center to see the computer and science laboratories, and to discuss your educational plans and how GBC can help you achieve your educational goal.
