From Here, You Can Go Anywhere!
Cañada College students are exposed to a challenging academic environment designed to prepare them to transfer to America’s elite universities or to enter the workforce with the skills necessary to succeed. We have a national reputation for academic excellence because of what occurs inside the classroom and out. You can learn more by viewing our latest television commercial.
But don’t just take our word for it.
In a special report on California's community colleges, Schools.com rated Cañada College as one of the state's Top 25. In describing the school, the website said, "Cañada College proves that big things really can come in small packages. Not only is Cañada College one of the state's leading community colleges in terms of completion and transfer rates, but this relatively small campus is one of the few nationally to offer bachelor's degrees through its University Center."
As Schools.com points out, sometimes smaller is better, especially when it comes to the number of students in a classroom. We understand that students need the right atmosphere. At Cañada, you won’t sit in large classrooms with hundreds of students listening to lectures. Instead, you’ll have an opportunity to engage your professors and fellow students in smaller classrooms designed to facilitate group discussions and interactive learning.
We also understand that not all learning occurs in the classroom. Cañada encourages students to expand their horizons by applying for internships. Study labor rights issues in the United Arab Emirates? Conduct research on sustainable energy? Study at the prestigious Brookhaven National Lab? Learn how to control robots at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center? Yes, our students have done all of this and more.
There is one more component to successful learning. Students need to feel part of a community. At many colleges, students drive to campus, attend class, and leave. That’s not a recipe for success. Whether you are taking one class for professional development or a full load to transfer, we encourage you to participate in extracurricular activities.
Cañada has a rich history in competitive athletics, including numerous league and state championships. Our student body government, the Associated Students of Cañada College, works with our faculty and staff to provide a voice in decision making for our students. Beta Zeta Nu, our nationally-recognized honors club, helps mold future leaders. No matter what your interest, we have a club or activity that you’ll enjoy at Cañada.
We encourage you to explore our website for more information. If you have a question, Ask Cañada. If you are ready to challenge yourself academically we would love to see you on our campus. At Cañada, you can go anywhere from here!
