I had the privilege to take a tour of the Community College of Philadelphia yesterday and see their Gateway to College program in action. Gateway to College is an alternative education program for School District of Philadelphia students, ages 16-21, who have dropped out of school but desire to get back on track and earn a diploma and more. What separates Gateway to College from other programs is that participating students not only have a second chance to earn a high school diploma, but will also earn college credits toward an associate’s degree or certificate. It was such an awesome experience! Know someone who could benefit from the Gateway to College program? Check it out here: www.ccp.edu/academic-offerings/high-school-student-programs/gateway-college
