The good news is that perhaps for the first time in your life, you'll be responsible for scheduling your time, selecting your teachers and getting from one place to another without anyone looking over your shoulder. Sounds exciting, right? Well, it can also be a little daunting. Have no fear, our Outreach team is here to help.
We will introduce you to our campus and to people who can help you plan for college, tell you about admission requirements, degree and certificate programs, guaranteed transfer programs, financial aid, campus life, student services - everything you need to feel comfortable at West Valley.
High School Outreach
Because we work so closely with high school counselors, we visit high schools frequently, giving workshop presentations to students like you:
We're proud of our campus and we can't wait to show it to you. We take groups of high school students on tours and address their individual interests and concerns. Contact your high school career counselor for information on upcoming scheduled events.
Individual Tours - Check back in the spring.
Group Tours -
Beginning 10/7 – 12/9 - every Wednesday from 3:30 – 4:30
Note: No tour - 11/25
You may notice our presence at community events. That's because we work with local organizations to offer college planning and financial aid workshops and tours for organization members whose circumstances have prevented them from pursuing their educational goals. Organizations interested in our services should email or phone 408 741-2672
We don't just help incoming students, we help existing students, too, by giving classroom presentations and sharing information at on-campus events throughout the year. You're always welcome to stop by our office with questions or needs.

The Middle College Program at West Valley College offers a special opportunity to students from Campbell Union High School District and Los Gatos-Saratoga Union High School District who are seeking a more challenging academic program and who have the social and academic skills to successfully function in college level classes. Students also need to be motivated to do independent research and to report their findings in both oral and written form. Students selecting and qualifying for the program are usually seeking a wider choice of electives and are usually anxious to get an early start on college credits. The program is housed entirely on the West Valley College campus, so students are no longer actively involved on their campuses of origin. They do, however, receive a diploma from their “home” high school, and they are allowed to participate in that school’s graduation ceremonies.
Students are enrolled in high school classes as well as college classes. Students enroll between 6 college units and no more than 11 college units per semester.
The program for juniors includes:
The senior program includes:

The College Advantage Program is open only to Campbell Union High School and Los Gatos-Saratoga Union High School District Seniors. It is designed for high achieving seniors, with a grade point average of 3.5 or higher, to complete their senior year at West Valley College while taking college level courses not offered by their respective high school.
Concurrent high school students who are California residents, do not pay tuition for their college courses. This necessitates certain registration requirements that have been included as part of the application process for the program, which involves forms, essays, letters of recommendation and interviews.
To assist the students through this process, the application packet outlines the necessary steps and information for those interested in the program.
