Clatsop Community College is a public, two-year, co-educational institution serving northwest Oregon and southwest Washington.
With an enrollment of about 1300, CCC is located in Clatsop County at the mouth of the Columbia River in historic Astoria. It enjoys the mild, if wet, climate that has helped make the Oregon coast famous for its lush, green beauty and rugged shoreline.
Classes are also offered throughout the District in outlying areas from Cannon Beach and Seaside to Warrenton, Westport, Knappa, and Clatskanie. One unique program is the Maritime Science Department that offers a hands-on experience in such areas as Net Mending, Galley Cooking and Celestial Navigation.
Fort Clatsop National Memorial is located nearby, containing a replica of the winter quarters where Meriwether Lewis, William Clark and their fellow explorers spent the winter of 1805-06.
The Columbia River Maritime Museum is also located nearby. The Museum preserves and interprets the rich maritime heritage of the Pacific Northwest.
