of Wilkes Community College

The Alleghany Center serves the residents of this county with traditional curriculum courses and continuing education courses. The county commissioners appoint two Alleghany representatives to the Board of Trustees of Wilkes Community College. A local advisory board meets periodically to make recommendations on how the college can best serve the residents of Alleghany County. 

The center is co-located with the new Blue Ridge Business Development Center on Atwood Street in Sparta. The Alleghany JobLink is also located at the center. JobLink provides employment and training services to residents through its partners which include the North Carolina Employment Security Commission, WCC/WIA, Vocational Rehabilitation, and Work First. Job placement, human resources development courses, and assistance with education are just some of the services provided. Curriculum classes are offered in Accounting, Business Administration and Arts and Sciences. Students attend classes in a variety of classroom settings, including regular classroom, hybrid format, or in our cyber classroom. Numerous continuing education courses are also offered. Basic and advanced computers, notary public, real estate, emergency medical, and firefighter training are examples of courses available to the county's residents. 

Adult High School and Adult Basic Education programs operate year round. The Adult High School program allows students the opportunity to earn a high school diploma awarded by the Alleghany County Board of Education and WCC, or prepare for the NC High School Equivalency Diploma.  

The Alleghany Center is an active participant in the county's economic development. A variety of industrial training is offered, both at the center and at individual manufacturing facilities. Additionally, job-skill development courses and small business seminars are available. 

The Alleghany Center is supported by a growing student enrollment. It offers a variety of educational opportunities at a convenient location to meet the needs of residents of Alleghany County.
