Gateway to College

Gateway to College at Front Range Community College is a program that works in partnership with local area school districts to serve youth 16 to 21 years old who have dropped out of high school or are significantly behind in credits and unlikely to graduate. The dual credit program allows students to earn a high school diploma while progressing toward a college degree or certificate. Gateway to College operates as a program within a community college, and accepted students take all of their classes on the community college campus. FRCC Gateway to College is part of a national network of over 40 programs across the nation working together to solve the dropout crisis. The program achieves success by combining high academic expectations with one-on-one advising and support. "Resource Specialists" act as teachers, coaches, mentors and advisors. They follow each student throughout their Gateway to College experience until they earn a high school diploma.
