Astoria High School on Jerome Avenue was built in 1909-1910 at a cost of $100,000 and operated until the present high school was constructed in 1957.  Renovation of the former Astoria High School into the college’s Towler Hall began in 1962. CCC became the first community college in Oregon to be established in its own quarters. Classes began in September 1962 with 224 registered students. Today, Clatsop Community College serves more than 2,200 students in credit classes and more than 3,000 through workforce training or education for life opportunities.
