Early College Program

High achieving students in grades seven through twelve enroll in college classes, several of which are held on the school’s campus.  Through a unique partnership with Los Angeles Trade Technical College (LATTC) and Los Angeles City College, our students can also take college classes on our campus.  Since the program’s inception, more than 150 students have completed at least three classes each. The current graduating seniors have accumulated on average 20 college credits through this arrangement.  We envision future students receiving an Associates of Arts (AA) degree along with their high school diploma upon graduation.In the school year 2010-2011, we had students graduating with as many as 35 community college credits in addition to their regular course work and AP classes.
