CPCC celebrates opening of its Ballantyne Center

Central Piedmont Community College celebrated the opening of its new location in Ballantyne on Wednesday.

The Charlotte community college’s newest classroom space includes 10,000 square feet of leased space in Ballantyne Corporate Park, which will be known as CPCC Ballantyne Center.

It is located in the 76,000-square-foot Gibson Building at 11430 Community House Road.

Ballantyne is one of the fastest-growing areas of Mecklenburg County with 200,000-plus residents and roughly 210 businesses, says Tony Zeiss, CPCC president. To continure…


It’s graduation day for eight new workers from the Apprenticeship 2000 program.


The former students and apprentices have spent the past four years working at local manufacturers while attending Central Piedmont Community College. Now it’s time to enter the work force in earnest.


Central Piedmont Community College (CPCC) dedicated its facilities services building today in honor of retired executive vice president and long-time college administrator Dr. Kathy H. Drumm.

Your annual gifts make a difference every day! Your gifts provide students with the latest in instructional equipment and technologies as well as instructors that inspire and  motivate students to be the best. Your gifts and support helped CPCC students to achieve and succeed.

The Medical Careers and Cosmetology Programs Division was thrilled to report a 100% certification exam pass rate for all of its programs:

  • Medical Laboratory Technology
  • Pharmacy Technology
  • Ophthalmic Medical Assisting
  • Cosmetology
Yes, your support helped make this possible. Thank you!

Beginning this fall, Central Piedmont Community College (CPCC) will launch a compressed, two-year associate degree program at its Levine Campus in Matthews, N.C., giving students the opportunity to complete their two-year degree in just 12 months.



LeMond Hart ushers you into his tiny vintage men’s clothing shop, tucked into NoDa’s Area 15. He rushes behind the coffee bar and offers you a Café LeMond coffee confection, with whipped cream and caramel drizzle.

Racks of men’s clothes perch all about the place – pants and jackets, shirts and vests – and glass cases with lapel pins, cufflinks, shoes and belt buckles dot the shop. Little tables and chairs cluster near the coffee bar, old framed photos and eclectic art line the brightly colored walls, and on a bench snoozes an orange tabby named Garfield.


When Central Piedmont Community College’s (CPCC) 2015 fall semester opens on Aug. 17, students will have four additional associate degree programs to consider. The college will launch new degree programs in engineering, biomedical equipment technology, broadcasting and production, and global logistics and distribution management.

On June 11, 2015, nurisng alumni gathered to celebrate the success of the Christa A. Overcash Associate Degree in Nursing program. After welcoming remarks and  shared success stories, the alumni were treated to tours of the new simulation labs and instructional spaces. Current students and May graduates of the program acted as tour guides and hosts for the evening.
