The Community College has designed a comprehensive program to expose Washington D.C.'s high school students to knowledge, curricula, and tools to transition them to college successfully. Our students learn important college readiness skills like how to apply to college, how to study more effectively, how to self advocate, and much more.
Dual Enrollment Program
High school students take college courses at the Community College.
Early ACCUPLACER Testing
Provide ACCUPLACER pre-testing for 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th graders, which tells students whether or not they are academically ready for credit-bearing college classes.
College READY Intervention
Provide online interventions for students who do not meet the required scores for reading, writing, and math.
Students receive college credits for completion of identified courses taken in high school.
"After completing a college level class, I feel prepared for college and know that it will not be as difficult as I had imagined. The early college experience taught me to efficiently manage my time and to procrastinate less often." - Rodrigo, C.A.R.E. Program Student
