Success Story: Lucia Cavallini-Martinez

What Do We Offer?

Imagine the jump-start you'll get on life. And, because of our accelerated program, you can earn up to 54 units of college credit. Through a fifth year of study, you can earn an associate degree. 

Who Do We Serve?

Every high school student who wants a challenge! Our program enrolls students looking for a challenging and non-traditional education. We help our students bridge the divide between high school and college, making higher education more accessible and affordable. We're ideal for students whose parents are not college graduates, because our goal is to make them the first generation with a college diploma in their family.

An Enhanced Curriculum

All students take both high school and college courses. In the 9th and 10th grade, you'll be taught by San Diego Unified School credentialed teachers and given extensive support to prepare for college-level courses. In 11th and 12th grade, upperclassmen move up to a combination of high school and college classes while still getting extra academic support.
