Dual Enrollment

DUAL ENROLLMENT

ABC Unified is proud to partner with Cerritos College to provide college courses to high school students on our own campuses. These courses are part of the College and Career Access Partnership Agreement, adopted by ABC Unified in May of 2018. This agreement is a result of Assembly Bill 288. This state bill aims to:

    • Reach a broader range of students with college courses
    • Emphasize college and career readiness, Career and Technical Education (CTE), and transfer pathways
    • Allow for college courses to be taught on high school campuses and exclusively to high school students
There are many benefits to dual enrollment courses and these should be reviewed with your school counselor. Here are a few of the advantages:
    • Introduction to and preparation for college academic life
    • Smoother transition from high school to college
    • Ability to explore interests, careers, and majors
    • Opportunity to address skill gaps
    • Motivation to persist and pursue a postsecondary certificate or degree
    • Ability to begin earning college credits during high school
    • Confidence in one's academic ability
