Inaugurated in 1969, Skyline College is one of the three community colleges that belong to the San Mateo County Community College District. It is located west of Skyline Boulevard in the town of San Bruno. Focusing on offering students high-quality programs, Skyline College has managed to rise to prominence over the years as being a high-class community college. Its students can aspire to transfer after their two years of study to some of the most important universities in California, such as Stanford, Berkeley, and UCLA.
Students interested in two-year degrees can graduate with either an Associate in Arts or Associate in Science degree; 43 certificate programs are also available (going from Cosmetology to Information Technology).
The college itself is divided into nine divisions, ranging from business to physical education, and each one has achieved high levels of excellence that have earned Skyline accreditations by the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, and by the Office of Private Postsecondary Education.
