Earn Both College & High School Credits at Sac High!

Sacramento Charter High School is launching a new program this fall to help its students obtain college credit while still in high school. The dual enrollment program at Sac High – or Panther Pipeline – will allow juniors and seniors to enroll in courses taught by Sacramento City College instructors on the high school campus. “We want to get them to and through college and expose them to as much college as we absolutely can,” said Laura Davis, Sac High’s college coordinator. Davis spearheaded the idea, pitching it in her interview for the job. St. HOPE Public Schools received a College and Career Access Pathways Grant from the California Department of Education to support the program and get the idea up and running. It will start this fall. Edie Park, a junior, is still a couple of years away from college but has her sights set on UC Berkeley. She wants to study computer science and said she is eager for the opportunity to not only take a college-level course early but to have a better understanding of what learning at a higher level will require. There are a multitude of benefits to allowing students to receive both high school and college credit for their work in high school, Davis said. Those advantages range from the cost — they’re free— to have access to resources at Sacramento City College such as the library, tutoring and events.
