We know the West Valley. In GCC’s 50-plus years, our academic programs have evolved as the West Valley’s population has shifted away from agriculture to service and high-tech. From nursing to fire science safety to biotechnology, GCC understands the pulse of the local economy and provides students with exciting career paths and local business, industry, and government partnerships.
" I feel that being involved on campus at GCC benefits me with school and my skills. Not only does my involvement benefit me, but the people I come across too. "
Indulge in the creative arts without ever leaving campus. From dance, theatre, and music performances, to permanent art installations on the grounds in the library, GCC has a history of artistic distinction. Our arts and culture scene may even pique your interest to try an art class or explore a performing arts, music business, or audio production degree.
" The dance program at GCC gave me the confidence to say "I can do this"... The dance instructors are a resource and with their kindness and generosity, they help you grow into a skilled dancer. "
