    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.

    This morning, students and staff at one of our schools, Grant Elementary in Richmond, had to briefly shelter-in-place because gunshots were fired in the area.
