Gateway to College students



This is your opportunity to open a new chapter in your life.

By choosing Gateway to College, you have made the decision to take charge of your life and give yourself the best possibility to succeed.

Gateway to College is a dual enrollment program between City College of San Francisco and San Francisco Unified School District for students between the ages of 16 and 21 who are behind in credits. This partnership allows students to complete a high school diploma while attending City College simultaneously.

In addition to earning your high school diploma, Gateway to College offers pathways to entry level positions for the career of your dreams. Within three semesters students will be able to receive a certificate in Child Development or Auto Technology. Other certificates, like Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA), Computer Networking Information Technology (CNIT) and Culinary Arts are also available to you. If this peaks your interest, you are encouraged to apply.

Gateway to College also has supportive services such as a Wellness Center and other educational resources provided by San Francisco Unified School District to offer an environment of success.

Come join the Gateway to College family and begin your educational endeavors. We admit students at the beginning of each semester. Contact us for the next available info session to learn about our application and acceptance process.
