Ventura County encompasses 21 school districts, 3 community colleges, and a four year university. Our K-12 public school population approaches an enrollment of 140,000 with educational opportunities as diverse as the districts we serve.

There are no DOD schools on board Naval Base Ventura County.

Naval Base Ventura County is surrounded by several cities which house most of our personnel. Each of these cities-Camarillo, Oxnard, and Port Hueneme-has its own elementary school district or districts. All three are serviced by the same High School District.

Elementary school children living onboard Point Mugu attend Ocean View School Districtschools. Those living in housing in Camarillo attend Pleasant Valley School District schools. Those living in housing at Port Hueneme attend the Hueneme School District. People living off-base in the surrounding areas are serviced by several elementary districts. All children are bused to their schools on the Point Mugu site. Bus service around the county and at Port Hueneme varies depending on distance from the school. Lunch is provided at all schools at cost. Before and after school programs vary by school. The GATE program is offered for exceptional children and varies by school. Football, soccer, tennis, basketball, swimming is offered by most schools. The pupil/teacher ratio is 20:1 for elementary schools and 30:1 at all others depending on the school. Most schools use the traditional grading system of A, B, C, D, & F. 

More specific information may be obtained by contacting the Ventura County Superintendent of Schools at 805-383-1900 or visiting their website. This information can be obtained by calling any of the school districts listed or by contacting the Family Service Center, Relocation Counselor at 805-982-5037.

Many public schools offer independent study or home-based study as an option. California has a growing number of charter schools which offer different types of schooling in non-traditional settings. To learn what options your local schools offer, start by asking the public school district in which you live what programs allow schooling at home. Parents can also file a Private School Affidavit to the California Department of Education to provide home schooling. Please contact the NBVC School Liaison Officer for more information.

Adult Education

Naval Base Ventura County is truly fortunate to be in the middle of an area having three community colleges. These colleges accept all military as "California residents" for the purpose of tuition and spouses of active duty are considered "California residents" for the first year of the sponsor's tour.

There are a generous number of colleges and universities in commutable distance of Naval Base Ventura County. The University of LaVerne is on both bases and Embry Riddle is onboard Point Mugu. Active duty should get in touch with the Navy College Office at 805-989-8362 Point Mugu or 805-82-3940 Port Hueneme for assistance with educational requirements and questions.
