It opened in September 1947, with 70 students and 18 faculty members and is part of the Los Angeles Community College District. The school's initial focus was crop cultivation and animal husbandry, and still retains a large swatch of open fields for hands-on working farm training. In 1956 the school was renamed Los Angeles Pierce College. Photograph caption dated April 29, 1955 reads, "Queen Sue Schnaidt, waving hat in greeting, and princesses Kay Killingsworth, Beverly Trott, Cynthia Meskimen, Beverly Abrams, Sharon Black and Wilda Willard, from left, will welcome visitors to Pierce College's second annual intercollegiate rodeo May 7 and 8."
