Campus Tours


Come visit West Valley College. Our beautiful Saratoga campus in the foothills of the Santa Cruz mountains offers an oasis that differs from the noise and overcrowding of other local colleges. You'll be able to tour our newly renovated classrooms and buildings, including the Cilker School of Art and Design, which features outstanding career programs departments and a collaborative study/work environment that inspires. Outdoors, the newly restored Vasona Creek runs through the middle of campus and is not only a beautiful centerpiece, but offers an example of our environmental stewardship. We offer guided tours every week (with some exceptions). Once you visit West Valley, you will know it is the right fit for you.

High School Group Tours

We're proud of our campus and we can't wait to show it to you. We invite high school groups to arrange a tour and a “West Valley 101” workshop. Contact your high school counselor or career tech for information on upcoming scheduled events.
