​​Message from the President​​

Welcome to Napa Valley College!​​​​​​​​​

Education is the pathway to success in our society, and today, learning has never been more vital. 

Napa Valley College is committed to supporting a college culture of academic excellence and an environment that values and sustains student success and equity. We are fortunate to have a distinguished faculty of innovative teachers and administrators, a dedicated and creative staff, a diverse student body, a committed group of alumni and friends, and deep connections to the community. 

Napa Valley College provides an opportunity for anyone to take a course – whether a current student looking to get ahead or a member of the community wanting to hone job skills or explore a personal interest. Certificates prepare students for entry-level work and/or supplement their skills for job advancement opportunities. Students can often earn a certificate in one year or less. Degree programs prepare students for a career and/or transfer to a bachelor's degree program. 

Due to the current Shelter-at-Home Order and social distancing protocols, our classes are currently being offered online. It is temporary and we look forward to welcoming everyone on our campus soon. 

Napa Valley College continues to be the county's hub of education, culture and the arts providing an academically rich, multicultural learning experience offering a range of community education, noncredit classes, and campus activities that bring us together. 

All the best,

​Dr. Ron Kraft
Superintendent/President
Napa Valley College
