Award-Winning Schools in the Livermore Valley

The strong partnership between the schools, business and government here in the Livermore Valley means our students get the education they need to plan for next-generation jobs that may not even exist yet. With an emphasis on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math), means that our children can build an educational profile that will be attractive to future high-tech employers such as LLNL, Sandia Laboratories and other tech businesses in the area.

The partnership is so strong that the Livermore’s superintendent, Kelly Bowers, is a member of the LVCC board of directors.
