Welcome from the President

Welcome to Cañada College! I am pleased that you have chosen our College to pursue your educational goals and career aspirations.
For more than 50 years, Cañada College has provided enriching and life-changing educational opportunities for the residents of San Mateo County. With the support and guidance from award-winning faculty and staff, students can pursue certificates and degrees for career training or to serve as a transfer gateway to four-year colleges and universities.
Here at Cañada, you will have the opportunity to choose from hundreds of day, evening, and weekend courses in more than 40 quality instructional programs, including sciences, business, multi-media, medical assisting, the arts, and technical training. The College also provides extensive basic skills training and innovative student support services in counseling, orientation, certificate and degree planning, transfer assistance, and tutoring.
Part of a college experience is becoming involved both in and outside of class and I encourage you to join in co-curricular activities, including: student government, intercollegiate athletics, student clubs, honors societies with whom you can share and exchange ideas. Use this time to get to know your instructors and visit them during their office hours if you have any questions or need additional help.
