What We’re About

What We Are About

West Valley is about success. It’s about helping students create a future for themselves so they can contribute to a world that needs their talents, drive and enthusiasm. We do that by providing as much one-on-one interaction with students as possible. The results speak for themselves.

  • 571 students transferred to UCs and CSUs in 2012

  • 552 students earned AA/AS degrees in 2012

  • 170 students earned Certificates that led to careers in 2012

  • We host learners from 25 countries who come to the United States looking for the kind of instruction that will help them contribute to the global economy.

  • We offer classes on our beautiful 143-acre Saratoga campus in the foothills of the Santa Cruz Mountains, located at the southwest border of Silicon Valley. Here you can expand your mind, hang out with friends, and contemplate a world of ideas.
