Coast Community College District has entered into a Dual Enrollment/College and Career Access Pathway (CCAP) Partnership Agreement with Garden Grove Unified School District. Adopted by the Board of Trustees at its Nov. 20, 2018 meeting, the Agreement provides a framework for the two Districts to work together on developing pathways from high school to community college for career technical education or preparation for transfer.
Through this Agreement, Garden Grove Unified high school students take college courses while in high school with the goal of successfully transitioning to credit coursework at Coastline, Golden West, or Orange Coast College for the purpose of obtaining an associate degree or career technical education certificate or preparing for transfer.
Creating seamless pathways particularly helps high school students who may not already be college bound or who are underrepresented in higher education. Dual enrollment program outcomes include increased high school graduation rates and improved college and career readiness for high school students.
With the adoption of this Agreement, Coast Community Colleges now maintains partnerships with three local school districts – Garden Grove Unified School District, Huntington Beach Union High School District, and Newport Mesa Unified School District.
