Option 2) Students graduating from high school can attend a University of California or a California State University. These Universities allow students coming straight out of high school to excel in math, reading, and writing. Students can attend any University of their choice located in the United States, as long as they meet the campus requirements and standards. In California there are 10 UC’s and 23 CSUs that high school or transfer students can choose from. A 4 year University is a much more challenging and expensive path for graduating students. This option would be more challenging because of the work students are required to do while managing to be independent. Students that are rewarded with scholarships can use this money to pay for their expenses or college tuition.
