Voted Ohio’s Best Hometown in 2020, Gallipolis, (pronounced Gall-a-police) is home to our main campus. Located in southeastern Ohio along the banks of the river, we are 100 miles southeast of Columbus and 44 miles northwest of Charleston, West Virginia. Travelling to and from our region is easily accessible with an international airport in Columbus and two smaller airports within 65 miles.
Our communities are the perfect place for kids to grow and learn, with ample opportunities for your children to not only be champions on the field or court, but also excel in the classroom. Ohio University, University of Rio Grande, and Marshall University offer higher learning close to home.
