Beautifully nestled in the Sacaton Hills, Central’s Signal Peak Campus is located four miles east of I-10 at exit 190 near Casa Grande, midway between Arizona’s two largest cities - Phoenix and Tucson - in the western edge of Pinal County. The I-10 Corridor is rapidly developing as a primary trade and commerce route for the Western United States.
The largest of the three campuses, Signal Peak serves many communities, including Arizona City, Casa Grande, Coolidge, Eloy, Florence, Maricopa and Stanfield. The campus has a large indoor theater and is the only facility to include an on-campus housing option.
Central’s residence life area includes a modern three-story tower, plus quads and suites that house about 400 students. Room and board are affordable and everything on campus is within walking distance.
Signal Peak is also home to the Vaqueros and the Vaqueras, Central’s men’s and women’s national-caliber athletic programs. During the 2006-07 athletic campaign, the women’s track and field team captured its second consecutive National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Division I title, while the men were co-champions, giving Central Arizona College 33 national championships.
In addition to track and field, the women’s basketball team finished as the Division I runner-up; baseball was within a step of going to the NJCAA Division I World Series; both the men’s and women’s cross country teams finished among the Top 3 in the nation; and the softball team participated in regionals. In June, the rodeo squad traveled to the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association Championships in Casper, Wyoming.
