Learning Communities

Learning communities are linked classes: the same group of students take two or more classes with the same instructors. The professors work together to ensure common themes in class assignments and activities, as well as accessibility to academic counseling and helpful services available on campus and in the community.

Students who are enrolled in learning communities are more likely to succeed academically. The learning community fosters a tight knit relationship between faculty and students. Join a learning community, receive extra support and make friends for a lifetime!

Cañada College offers a variety of learning communities. In consultation with your counselor, select the learning community based on your placement test score. To be a part of the learning community, you must remain enrolled in all sections. To view current learning communities, please check-off the "Learning Communities" filter-box under the "Course Type" tab in WebSchedule when searching for open classes. 

*When registering on Websmart, you must enter each CRN (course reference number) for all classes within the specific learning community. To view a list and explanations of all course types, please visit our Course Type Descriptions webpage in WebSchedule.
