Deadline this week: If you took an articulated course this past year and are eligible to receive college credits but have not completed linking your VVC ID to your MyMentor account, you must do so by this coming Friday, June 17 by 5:00 pm in order to receive your credit. Remember that the process can take a few days, so you need to start immediately if you didn't complete this when your teacher went through it in class. Instructions on this process are posted below. If you get stuck and need assistance, please contact Stephanie Schrum in the front office at 760-868-3222 x2221 or Mr. Piercy via email at One of the common missing steps is that students have applied to VVC and have received a student ID, but haven't linked it to their MyMentor account. However, if you haven't applied to VVC yet, you have to do so immediately because it can take a couple days to receive a VVC student ID via email.

If you've already applied to VVC but are having trouble linking your VVC ID number to your MyMentor account, you can get help in person either at VVC this Thursday from 8am-12pm in building 21 or at the Serrano library on Friday from 8am-11am. 

Instructions can be found below.

VVC’s K16 Bridge Program was originally designed by teachers, counselors and administrators to increase the number of students successfully transitioning to a post-secondary institution. High Desert high schools participating in the program are able to provide their students with lessons, activities, and projects that provide students a clear pathway when they enter college. The K16 Bridge Program meets the new Student Success Act requirements for matriculation, and is developing programs that will help students enter college better prepared in Math and English. Students completing the program are eligible for Block 2B priority registration their first semester at VVC. All High Desert K-12 schools in the VVC region are eligible to participate. Serrano High School is a participant in the K16 Bridge Program.
