Franciscan Services Acquires Valley College

Valley College is excited to announce that The Board of Trustees of Hilbert College, a Catholic Franciscan college based in Hamburg, New York, recently announced the acquisition of our great institution by Franciscan Services, a not-for-profit affiliate of Hilbert College. Together, the colleges will serve more than 2,000 students across New York, West Virginia, and Ohio in traditional and online programs. All required regulatory approvals have been secured and the consortium began operations on June 1.

Under the auspices of Franciscan Services, the two colleges will operate independently as separate colleges, contributing to each other’s vitality within their accreditors’ policies. Immediate plans between the two colleges include the establishment of transfer articulations in their respective online degree programs, the sharing of best practices, and expanded tuition waiver benefits for employees at both colleges.

Providing Quality Career Training Since 1987

Valley College was founded in 1987 to deliver career education programs to local communities in West Virginia. Since then, the college has evolved over time as the needs of its students and local employers have changed. We aim to provide you with the support you need to graduate and start a rewarding career. At Valley College, we know that going to school is about more than a certificate to hang on the wall. It’s about getting a great job you love. We also know that our success is measured by your success. Our worth is based on helping you build a brighter future through focused career training and access to resources to improve your life.

Community Involvement

Our Cleveland campus participated in “Stuff the Bus”, which provides necessary

collected at the campus.

Our students visited the Martinsburg Rescue Mission and served lunch to those in need. It’s an honor for us to serve our community in any way that we can. Our students touched so many lives, and in the process, their lives were touched as well. Thank you for sacrificing your time, and going beyond yourselves to show the ones we love that we care! Thank you Martinsburg Rescue Mission for having us. We can’t wait to come back!

Valley Martinsburg hosted a School Supply Drive for local families in need. Thank you staff, students, and faculty for all of your hard work and dedication for our community. We were able to help so many families get off to a great start this year, with backpacks and supplies.
