Gateway to College Program

Gateway to College deadline near

The Gateway to College program at Community College of Philadelphia serves at-risk youth, 16 to 20 years old, who have dropped out of school. The program gives students the opportunity to earn a high school diploma while also earning college credits and achieving college success. What makes Gateway to College truly unique is that our students simultaneously accumulate high school and college credits, earning their high school diploma while progressing toward an associate degree or certificate.

Don’t miss out! Gateway to College student recruitment is winding down for the Fall 2007 semester! Classes will begin on September 4, 2007. We still have openings for our Information Sessions on 7/31, 8/7 and 8/14.

The process to apply is simple and it’s free.

The basic eligibility requirements include: You are between ages 16 & 20; you dropped out of a Philadelphia public high school and have been out of school for a semester; you are able to complete the requirements for a high school diploma by age 22; you currently have fewer than 19 credits toward your high school diploma; you have a strong desire to work hard and earn both a high school diploma and college credits; you meet minimum reading-level requirements (which will be determined by a reading assessment)
