Facts and History

Augusta Technical College is a two-year college located in Augusta, Georgia. The Georgia State Board of Education, in conjunction with the Richmond County Board of Education, established Augusta Area Vocational-Technical School in 1961.  The School's planned capacity at that time was 350 students in ten full-time diploma programs.  Recognizing the need for more technically trained employees in the service area, the state and county boards established the separate Richmond Area Vocational-Technical School in 1963, with a planned capacity of 250 students in ten full-time diploma programs. In 1966, the two vocational-technical schools were combined as the Augusta Area Technical School.  Subsequently, the School expanded to three additional sites.  In 1981, with the exception of the health occupations programs that remained in a facility on Walton Way, all programs offered by the School were moved to the current Augusta Campus location.
