Alexander County has the only satellite site for Catawba Valley Community College. In 2012, Alexander County Commissioners voted to expand the existing 15,000 square feet facility by purchasing an adjacent building containing approximately 38,000 square feet which will be used for training workers in the areas of sewing, upholstery, and welding. The training facility will play a critical role in workforce development by providing a wide range of worker training for existing employers and for those considering re-locating or expanding in Alexander County.
Located in Taylorsville near U.S. Highway 64, the existing community college facility includes 10 classrooms, office space, conference room, and a large multi-purpose room that is used as a meeting room for county commissioners and for meeting space for other government events.
