San Joaquin Valley College

San Joaquin Valley College

San Joaquin Valley College is a private for-profit college with 17 locations across California as well as online. It was founded in 1977 by Robert and Shirley Perry as a private, for-profit, career college dedicated to providing high-quality occupational training. The first campus was in Visalia, CA and it trained health care professionals. Over the years they have added more and more campuses in Northern, Central, and Southern California. 

They added online in 2004, and in 2018, the San Joaquin Valley College, Inc. acquired Carrington College, including its 19 campuses in eight states. The Perry family created Ember Education to provide admin support and shared business services to San Joaquin Valley College and Carrington College. 

In addition to their degrees and certificates, they also offer career services, resume building, interview preparation, extern-to-hire opportunities, career fairs and special events, and employer partners.
