Foothill College has a superior honors program for students who meet a certain GPA. Their honors program has a high rate of transfer to some of our country's best colleges, in comparisson to most community colleges.

Foothill is one of few community colleges that runs on the quarter system. This means students have a much smoother transition from community college to university. The faculty and staff here is also great. Everyone is here to help, they want to see students happy and succesful. The variety of courses here is unique as well. Students can obtain degrees in anything from graphic design to vetrinary technology. The transfer rate here is also very high.
