Career College & Life Skill Center
Please contact the counseling office for information about colleges and career opportunities. Information on FAFSA, scholarships, ASVAB, paying for college, college/career planning, etc.
Senior students that are planning on attending a 4 year, 2 year, or specialty school, need to file their FAFSA (Federal Application for FREE Student Aid). This should be completed regardless of income, as it can affect students getting other non-need based scholarships. If you need assistance filing, please do not hesitate to contact Mr. Barnes or Ms. Wray in the CCC 520-579-4400 ext. 4491.
For weekly college and career updates watch your weekly emails from the school, the MVHS website homepage (Mountain Lion News), or download the MUSD Mobile app and subscribe to Mountain View High School.
The Mountain View High School Career College & Life skill center was completed in 2019 incorporating 21st century strategies to address academic needs, and encourage social interactions and collaboration in a dignified, comfortable setting.
Home of the Lion Pride Program, the Resource Center provides opportunities for all students at Mountain View to have post-secondary success. Students can visit the Resource Center to fill out financial aid and scholarship forms, apply for jobs, and meet with college recruiters. Students can visit other spaces in the CC&LS Center for counseling help, to view exhibits, review their IEPs (Individual Education Programs), and learn life skills.
The CC&LS Center also accommodates the high school’s special needs program with spaces designed specifically for students with severe/profound disabilities and includes a co-teaching classroom and work area. The Life Skills Learning Center is envisioned as a model studio apartment complete with kitchen, laundry and other living spaces.
The recipient of the Distinguished Architecture Award from the American Institute of Architects, the building itself is designed to encourage socialization, chance interactions, and opportunities for learning outside of the classroom. The building configuration creates opportunities for outdoor collaboration and interaction while providing views of the natural environment from within.
High ceilings, natural light and views, vibrant colors, and material variety help to create a comfortable interior environment and spatial quality, similar to what a student might experience in future higher education settings.
LED lighting with automatic controls is energy efficient and supplements the interior natural lighting as needed.
Multiple gabled roof sections and the resulting varying-height forms are intended to contrast with the flat parapets of the existing school. The mountain-like roof structures extend beyond the enclosed building area to cover patio spaces and, when viewed from the channel side, look like houses along a river – recalling the saying “it takes a village” and symbolizing how every student here has a home away from home and is part of this extended school family.
