Prescott-Area Partners

Partnering with local higher education institutions

Even with a modest population, Prescott is home to two additional institutions of higher learning, along with an ecological design institute and a massage school. Prescott College's partnership with these organizations allows students an even broader offering of classes that complement or enhance their educational path without leaving town.

Yavapai College

Yavapai College, the local community college, offers a range of courses that supplement the Resident Undergraduate Degree. A significant number of students combine courses at the two institutions through a consortium agreement while maintaining their full-time eligibility for financial aid at Prescott College.

Ecosa Institute

Ecosa Institute, an ecological design institute located in Prescott, partners with Prescott College to offer one semester of courses toward the Ecological Design competence. Founded in the belief that design based on nature is critical to the search for a new design philosophy, Ecosa provides more comprehensive green-building knowledge than traditional architecture programs.

Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University

Currently, the College is negotiating with Embry-Riddle to create a mechanism for student exchanges. This would provide Prescott College students access to an increased number of science and higher level math courses.
