About Metro Transfer Academies

Why join Metro?

Supporting you for graduation and university transfer is what Metro is all about. Adjusting to college can be challenging. Learning in a small, supportive community of students and faculty can help you thrive throughout your first few years. Metro’s goal is to help you transfer in a timely manner and gain the skills you need to succeed in college and find a meaningful career.

Why do we need a program like Metro?

The gap in college completion between low-income and high-income students has doubled in the last 35 years. California is now the 50th out of the 50 states in its graduation rate for Latino/a and African American students--yet our state’s K-12 schools are already a majority Latino/a and today 73% of our state’s youth are from communities of color.  California can and must do better!   

Metro is for you if: 

  • You are a student who likes the idea of studying in a supportive community with friends, faculty and counselors who know you well;
  • You are interested in transferring to a four-year university.
  • You like the idea of studying in a supportive community with friends and faculty that know you well.
  • You are someone who wants a meaningful career that makes a difference in the world.  You want to give back to your community and help create a more just and healthy society;
  • You are focused, dedicated and have the time to take four classes (15 units) per semester or more;
  • You are concerned you may not have the academic preparation you need for college.
