Overview of COS
Visalia Technical Early College & College of Sequoias
Experience the power of collaboration with Visalia Technical Early College (VTEC) and the College of Sequoias (COS). Since VTEC's inception in 2010, our dynamic partnership has paved the way for students to seamlessly integrate COS classes into their early college journey, unlocking academic opportunities and career pathways. The 35-acre VTEC site, once shared with COS, now stands as a testament to our commitment to fostering educational excellence.
In 2019, VTEC and COS joined forces to secure a K12 Smarter Workforce Program Grant, catalyzing the growth of our Early College Agricultural Pathways. As the grant evolved, so did our dedication. In 2023, VUSD invested in a full-time Early College Student Success Liaison, Jamie Kelley, a COS veteran with a wealth of experience in supporting and engaging college students. VTEC proudly stands as one of the few schools in Tulare County offering this exceptional service, embodying our unwavering excitement for the bright futures we're shaping together. Join us on this thrilling educational journey where possibilities know no bounds.
