KPC celebrates 50th anniversary

On July 1, 2014, staff and faculty at KPC's Kenai River Campus raised KPC Founding Director Clayton Brockel's U.S. Flag (that was given to Brockel when he was discharged from the army on Aug. 2, 1946) to commemorate KPC's July 1, 1964 founding and in memory of Director Brockel. The flag was lowered on July 2 and placed in the KPC time capsule with instructions for the flag to be flown again on July 1, 2064.

Welcome to KPC!
KPC's Kenai River Campus is located in Soldotna on the banks of the Kenai River on more than 300 wooded acres and with an enrollment of over 2,000 students each semester, students will find a real sense of community on the campus. Small classes, individual attention and highly qualified faculty give the campus a private college feel! Come by and register for classes today.
