Gateway to College is designed for young adults ages 16 – 20 who have dropped out of high school or are significantly behind in credits and unlikely to graduate. The program enables them to complete their high school diploma requirements while simultaneously earning college credit toward an associate degree or certificate.
Students are placed into small learning communities during their first semester(s), and together they take classes in reading, writing, math, and college skills. Upon completion of the “Foundation” courses, students transition and begin taking classes with the general student population—all classes are conducted on the Contra Costa College campus. Throughout their enrollment in the program, students receive one on one advising and support from resource specialists who act as mentors and advisors. The wrap-around support of the resource specialists keeps students on the right track for success.
Students graduate from Gateway to College once they have completed their high school diploma requirements.
Contra Costa College is one of 35 community and technical colleges across the country currently offering the Gateway to College program.

Today is the last day of school and in most years, I could simply talk about graduations and the wonderful celebrations taking place. This year is different. The COVID-19 pandemic and civil protests have altered and changed society, education, and our communities.
We have started the process of working through various scenarios for the start of school. Whether we return to our classrooms in the fall, distance learning continues or some hybrid of the two, there are a lot of challenges that must be addressed and we will need your help in finding solutions.
Despite uncertainty, we know that students will need to learn and that we will need to offer services to support them and their families. We have several teams working together to create multiple plans for how instruction might look next year.
On Friday, Contra Costa Health Services released new guidance that allows for car-based gatherings, which includes graduations.

First, I would like to wish all of the mothers a Happy Mothers Day and Día de las Madres. Even though a normal celebration may not be possible due to the stay-at-home orders, I hope that you all find a time to celebrate the mothers in your life.
