Bridge to Community College

Ventura County is fortunate to have three outstanding Community Colleges; Moorpark, Oxnard and Ventura. Each of these campuses have programs that will lead to high-demand, high paying jobs and careers-often in less than two years. The colleges have collaborated with the Career Education Center and local high schools to map out a "bridge" between high school programs and community college programs. A program of study has been outlined below for a few of the high demand industries in our area and indicates which courses students should be taking in high school to prepare for entrance into the community colleges.
