Guilford Technical Community College (GTCC) is a two-year accredited community college in Guilford County, North Carolina. GTCC offers certificates, one-year and two-year career-related programs, a two-year college transfer program, personal enrichment courses, a variety of adult literacy opportunities and training for business and industry. GTCC is one of the largest community colleges in the state, with over 40,000 students. The school opened in 1958 with 50 students and two classes as the Guilford Industrial Education Center on the site of the Guilford County Tuberculosis Sanatorium, which had operated from 1924 to 1955. The purpose of GTCC has remained basically unchanged since it first opened: to give the people of Guilford County the training and education they need to compete in the job market. Today the mission of Guilford Technical Community College is to provide access to lifelong learning opportunities for personal growth, workforce productivity, and community service. The school is currently celebreting 50 years of educating guilford county and surrounding areas. Campus locations can be found in Jamestown, Greensboro, High Point, the Aviation Center at the Piedmont Triad International Airport, and the Small Business Center. There is hope to build another campus near the airport.

The school is part of the statewide North Carolina Community College System.
