Do you want to go to college, but aren’t sure how to get there? The Gateway to College program helps students who have dropped out of high school or who may not graduate. Through our program, you can obtain your high school diploma and earn college credits at the same time. Many graduates go on to finish AA degrees and transfer to four-year colleges.
To qualify for the Gateway to College program, you must:
* Must be approved by your school district to qualify.
Gateway to College contracts with your school district to offer you a scholarship to the program. The scholarship covers the cost of tuition and books.
In addition, you’ll have a Resource Specialist dedicated to your success. Your Resource Specialist will guide you through the college experience as an academic advisor; teach you about careers, organization and time management; and provide you with referrals to community resources.
To succeed in the program, you’ll need to be in class about 20 hours a week and do 3-4 hours of homework per day. You are expected to attend every class. Because the program requires a strong commitment, it’s best if you work fewer than 25 hours a week.
The program takes time – most of our students achieve their high school diploma in 2-3 years, but they often earn more than 30 college credits too!
Gateway to College can help you change your life. Students just like you are earning their diplomas, succeeding in college and pursuing exciting careers. You can choose a new path and create a bright future.
