Welcome to Hartnell's Education Centers in Castroville, Soledad and King City

During the Spring 2022 semester, which started Jan. 24, Hartnell College has begun offering its first-ever classes at the new Castroville Education Center. We also offer in-person classes at the new Soledad Education Center and the newly reopened King City Education Center, which has doubled in size thanks to an expansion.
