College before college

Our forward-reaching programs, including Dual Enrollment, Hoop of Learning, and Achieving a College Education (ACE), prepare pathways to college for high school and middle school students. For example, through the Basha Coding Academy, Dual Enrollment students gain valuable career training while earning college credit toward computer science degrees and certificates that prepare them for in-demand, high-paying coding careers. In partnership with the high schools we serve, we have embedded High School College Advisors onsite to help all students navigate these Early College programs, and assist seniors in making a successful transition into college.
