What’s so great about Santa Rosa Junior College’s Learning Communities is that they work to maximize your unique educational experience, potential, and aims. Using your assessment scores to line up the instructors and classes you need, you will learn the helpful strategies that keep you engaged in the classroom and in your own learning. As a result, you will quickly begin to discover your ideas and perspectives about education and your career aims. With ample support from the College, instructors, and other students, you will learn to assume responsibility for your own learning, decision making, and college achievement.

If you’re a student who wants to establish strong academic and social foundations that support your success while enrolled at SRJC, there are several outstanding Learning Communities that provide the support you need for a smooth transition to college life, including SMART START, First Year Experience (FYE), and Puente. All the learning communities offer:

  • Student-centered learning
