Victoria College, located in Victoria, Texas, was founded in 1925 and originally was known as Victoria Junior College. The school offered its courses through Patti Welder High School until the school experienced rapid growth following World War II due to the return of soldiers as well as overall growth of the school service area. As a result, the school was given its own campus, and changed its name to Victoria College. The school maintains two additional campuses in Port Lavaca and Gonzales, to better service the multi-county service area of the school.
