Classes to be Offered at Golden Valley Site this Fall
College of the Canyons will begin offering classes this fall at a second site in the eastern Santa Clarita Valley. Ten sections of in-demand, core educational classes in English, math, history, anthropology, Spanish, communications and real estate will be offered in rooms at the new Golden Valley High School starting Sept. 20.
Classes will be offered Monday through Thursday at the Golden Valley site. College of the Canyons is moving quickly to acquire its own property in the eastern Santa Clarita Valley, said Sue Bozman, dean of communications, marketing and external relations at the college. "But the demand for classes now by community members is significant, so weve decided to begin offering classes right away.
The college already offers a variety of classes at its Canyon Country ACCESS site at the Canyon Country Library, but those classes usually fill quickly. It makes good sense to do what we can to offer the classes that people want and need, said Bozman. "The Golden Valley site will allow us to meet those needs until we complete our own facility in the eastern part of our community.
English, history, anthropology and dance classes will be offered between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m., while communications, Spanish, math and real estate offerings will be held from 4 to 9 p.m.
These classes are not listed in the fall schedule of classes that were mailed to residences in June, but they are listed in the on-line schedule of classes at www.canyons.edu.
All Golden Valley site classes are considered short-term classes and run from Sept. 20 through Dec. 10.
