Valencia is often referred to as "Kirkman High," since one of the main campuses is located on Kirkman Road. Most high school students who lack the proper test scores to matriculate to a four-year institution end up at Valencia. For this reason, the school is also referred to as an institution that is "not so academically challenging." In spite of this infamous reference, it is one of the best community colleges in the United States. Graduates from Valencia matriculate to some of the best colleges and universities in the nation, including schools in the Ivy League.
If you're worried about the academic reputation, join the honors program, where every class is challenging. This program is restricted to students with a GPA of 3.25 or higher. The challenging nature of the honors classes means that many students bond over homework and study sessions, and honors students are often closer than the rest of campus. Keep in mind that the rigorous curriculum in this program requires a lot of reading and writing, as well as a research project.
Students outside of the honors program can still receive an excellent education, especially since many honors professors teach non-honors courses. No matter the program, professors at Valencia are highly resourceful. They will be your ally when it comes time to transfer to a four-year institution.
