Honors

The mission of the Paradise Valley Community College Honors Program is to provide promising scholars with challenging, innovative, and enriching learning opportunities within a close community comprised of faculty mentors and Honors students. In this atmosphere, our students learn to think critically, communicate effectively, and act with integrity. PVCC’s Honors scholars are encouraged to take full responsibility for their journey of life-long learning and to excel in scholarship, leadership, and civic responsibility.

"There is no road too long to the man who advances deliberately and without undue haste; there are no honors too distant to the man who prepares himself for them with patience."
Jean de la Bruyere
