Earn Your High School Diploma and College Credits
Gateway to College at Community College of Philadelphia is a scholarship program for School District of Philadelphia students, ages of 16-20, who have dropped out of school but have a desire to get back on track and earn a diploma and more. What makes Gateway to College truly unique is that our students will not only have a second chance to earn a high school diploma, but Gateway participants will also be earning college credits toward an associate’s degree or certificate.
It's all about education. In today’s global economy, more than 80 percent of the fastest growing jobs will require education or training beyond high school. Additionally, adults without a high school diploma are twice as likely to be unemployed. Therefore, without a high school diploma, your options are limited.
Philadelphia Gateway to College is an educational alternative for out-of-school youth who may not have had success in other learning environments. We are looking for students who have the desire and determination to learn, work hard and earn a high school diploma and a college degree.
