From humble beginnings, Valencia College has become an innovative leader in higher education with a national reputation for teaching excellence. With four campuses and two centers in the Orlando area, Valencia is now the third largest of Florida's 28 community colleges, teaching more than 50,000 students a year. To better meet the needs of our students, Valencia opened the East Campus in 1975, the Osceola Campus in 1997 and the Winter Park Campus in 1998. Yet we never lost sight of our original goals. Armed with practical knowledge, Valencia's faculty and staff put their energies into a "learning-centered" philosophy that emphasizes individual student success.
Our selection in 2000 as a Vanguard Learning College is just further affirmation of the effectiveness of our student-first philosophy. It's a philosophy we've had for more than 30 years, and it continues to guide us into what we hope is an even bigger and brighter future.
