PVCC Black Mountain Campus

Black Mountain campus is a multi-generational facility providing lifelong learning opportunities, community services, plus health and wellness programs. A partnership among Paradise Valley Community College, Desert Foothills YMCA, and the FCF (Foothills Community Foundation), the campus is designed as a neighborhood gathering place for people of all ages to exercise both their minds and bodies. It is located at the foot of iconic Black Mountain at 60th Street, just south of Carefree Highway.

The partners share a vision of bringing together the surrounding northeast valley communities of Carefree, Cave Creek, Anthem, North Phoenix, and north Scottsdale by providing education options, meeting spaces, and recreation facilities in one central location.

PVCC at Black Mountain, a Maricopa Community College, puts higher education within reach of the Valley’s north-central and northeast communities with both credit and non-credit classes. Adjoining PVCC is the FCF-Holland Community Center, which includes headquarters for the foundation, a bakery, and meeting spaces for nonprofit community groups and its partners.

The state-of-the-art Desert Foothills YMCA offers quality health and fitness opportunities, swimming, climbing, and sports venues plus endless programs for kids, teens, and adults.
