Schools at Valencia College

At Valencia College, we have six schools that focus on distinct areas of study. Academic programs within these schools are more career-focused than you’ll find in our general education curricula. Each school encourages a cohort experience, preparing you for the same career field, studying alongside the same group of students during your time at Valencia College. This approach allows students in each school to develop your own networks and communities, and form connections that can last throughout your professional careers.
