San Joaquin Valley College (SJVC) was founded in April 1977 as a private, for-profit career college dedicated to providing high-quality occupational training. The college’s Central California roots run deep. Founders Robert and Shirley Perry established the first campus in Visalia, California, training health care professionals.
Today, the college offers Associate of Science Degrees and Certificates of Completion in the areas of medical, business and trades at its campuses in Central California in Atascadero, Delano, Fresno, Hanford, Madera, Porterville, Santa Maria, Visalia, and the Fresno – Trades Education Center on the Fresno Yosemite International Airport.
SJVC is committed to the personal, academic and professional success of its students. We provide opportunities for developing career skills, critical thinking, professionalism, and an excellent learning experience for the classroom, workplace and life. Our classrooms incorporate hands-on assignments and projects which are vital for the vocational-based program offerings. The faculty are expected to be facilitators of the classroom by engaging students in an interpersonal, two-way dialogue. Individualized and personalized instruction is encouraged.
SJVC’s mission strongly emphasizes education directed toward career development and advancement. Real-world education is incredibly important. Many resources are available to the faculty to assist in the delivery of real work instruction, such as mock medical, trades and business settings within the classrooms, industry-specific equipment, interactive software with true-to-life scenarios, and field trips to local Central California businesses and medical environments. Many programs also include an externship or clinical experience.
