Paradise Valley Community College (PVCC) is a 2-year community college in Phoenix, Arizona. It is located in the North Phoenix neighborhood. A branch campus, PVCC at Black Mountain, opened in August 2009 in the far northern section of Scottsdale, Arizona to serve this rapidly growing area. It will also provide greater access for the communities of Cave Creek and Carefree.
The college mascot is the puma and the colors are sand and turquoise.
PVCC is located in Paradise Valley, one of the fifteen Urban Villages of Phoenix, which is easily confused with the town of Paradise Valley, adjacent to the city of Phoenix, but independent from it.
