3.87 Average Rating
In my time at Vanguard, I have learned more than I possibly could have imagined in general education and theatre. They have provided me with multiple opportunities to gain experience and I couldn't have asked for more.
Amanda from Bakersfield, CA
The teachers really want to see their students succeed.
Andrea from Mission Viejo, CA
Some classes are harder than others, but take them all seriously. in the end you will use all the information, no matter how small.
Kaitlyn from Castaic, CA
their academic rigor is highly strict in this area because of the fact that if a student from vanguard university does not do well in a semester, he or she will placed on academic probation or will not be able to attend vanguard anymore and will receive a letter from the d.a notifying that there will only be one chance to bring up their grades if so, then they could come back for another semester and have to do well.
Cristina De La Cerda from Lancaster, CA
I absolutely love the faculty at Vanguard. The professors are great at their job and because of that, they push you to be great also. Don't come to Vanguard thinking you're going to spend all your time at Disneyland, and none of your time on your schoolwork. You definitely gotta put in the work to keep those grades up!
Caitlyn :) from Temecula Ca
this depends on your professor. my classes are not hard; they are just a lot of work. i took a 400 level english class which was definitely challenging, but not impossible. your professors want to work with you and help you.
ashley from madera, ca
From the looks of it the classes they offer look like they will involve some work, but should not be too stressful.
