About Our College
Reedley College was founded in May 1926, as Reedley Junior College on the campus of Reedley High School. It became a full community college on July 1, 1946. In 1954, the school district voted to move Reedley College to its own campus and in 1956 it moved to its present location on 420 acres (1.7 km2) of what was once a part of the historic Thomas Law Reed Ranch, 300 acres (1.2 km2) remain used as farmland. In 1963 the college joined the SCCCD and was renamed Kings River Community College in 1980. However, by popular demand, the name Reedley College was restored in July 1998.
