Char Perlas

Welcome to College of the Siskiyous (Siskiyous) where students receive quality instruction and personalized student support. Our faculty, staff and administrators are dedicated to providing an optimal learning environment that allows students to reach their academic and career goals. Our beautiful campus grounds and facilities, with breathtaking views of Mount Shasta, makes Siskiyous a true destination college.

Siskiyous is proud to offer:

  • A variety of courses: Career and technical education, general education, noncredit, and community education courses are available at both the Weed and Yreka campuses.
  • Support services: Counseling, student success seminars, tutoring and comprehensive wrap-around services which assist in removing technological, food, and financial barriers so that students can focus on academics.
  • Competitive athletic programs: Lessons in sportsmanship, teamwork, competition and how to win and lose gracefully.

Furthermore, Siskiyous is one of eleven California Community Colleges that offers on-campus housing. Studies show that students who live on campus not only have a higher GPA, but they are more likely to graduate.

We are excited to support you through your academic journey and look forward to seeing you walk across the graduation stage, transfer to your university of choice, get that well deserved promotion and/or gain a new life skill!
