Santa Barbara Business College Completes Acquisition, Passing the Torch to San Joaquin Valley College, Inc.

San Joaquin Valley College, Inc. acquires Santa Barbara Business College

Santa Barbara Business College (SBBCollege) has been a key educator in communities across Central and Southern California for more than 125 years. SBBCollege has provided students with the necessary skills to meet the needs of local employers and start great careers, and is proud to pass the legacy of SBBCollege over to San Joaquin Valley College, Inc. (SJVCI) and the Perry family.

Founded by Robert and Shirley Perry in 1977, SJVCI is the parent organization of both San Joaquin Valley College (SJVC) and Carrington College. As a family-owned and operated institution, SJVC is highly aligned with SBBCollege’s career-focused programs, values and overall mission of providing a quality education and serving local communities.

It is important to note that there will be no change for current students as a result of the completed acquisition and change in ownership. SBBCollege will continue to provide instruction and student services without interruption.
