Middle College

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.
