History

In 1915, Santa Ana Junior College opened its doors to 25 students as a department of Santa Ana High School. It was the second community college founded in Orange County, behind Fullerton College, and the fourth oldest in all of California. An earthquake in 1933 damaged the Santa Ana High School building, prompting the campus move to North Main Street where it remained until 1947. A bond issue passed in 1945, paving the way for development of a 48 acre (194,000 m²) campus at its current location. Santa Ana College plays host to Middle College High School, a small alternative high school in the Santa Ana Unified School District in which students can earn their Associate of Arts degree at the same time as their High School diploma. In the late 1970s the college purchased the properties on Martha Lane south of the original campus and that land is now part of the parking lot. Recent years have witnessed the further development of and annexation of adjacent property to the original location.

In 1985, a satellite campus, what is now called Santiago Canyon College was established in Orange, California. Santiago Canyon has since grown in size to become a separate college from Santa Ana College (although both colleges are part of the Rancho Santiago Community College District).

Academics

Various programs lead to the awarding of Associate's degrees in Arts and Sciences, as well as vocational certificates.

Santa Ana College is also home to the Tessmann Planetarium which was renovated and now has a state-of-the art planetarium system.

Tessmann Planetarium is the largest, both in diameter (30 ft) and seating capacity planetarium in the County of Orange CA. It was completed and became operational in 1967.

Santa Ana College is also home to Around and About Orange County News (AAOC) and Noticiero Latino del Condado de Orange (NLCO)are student produced weekly news shows that have produced hundreds of professionals that work in the TV Broadcast, Film and Radio Industry. NLCO became the first Spanish language college newscast produced by a community college.

The TV Department takes advantage of the Digital Media Center (DMC) which was opened a few years ago. They use the DMC to produce, shoot and edit the College's Newscast.
