It is a multi-campus district comprised of Saddleback College in Mission Viejo, Irvine Valley College (IVC) in Irvine, and the Advanced Technology & Education Park (ATEP) in Tustin.

We know that higher education is directly linked to quality of life and economic vitality. We have helped generations of families achieve their educational and career goals since 1967.

Distinguished faculty from Saddleback College and Irvine Valley College provide students with rigorous academic classes to prepare them for transfer to four-year colleges and universities, basic skills attainment, or career technical training.
