Gateway to College Academy (GtC)

Gateway to College (GtC) Academy is an Early College High School, which is an innovative program that enables students to complete a high school diploma while receiving dual college credit and invaluable access to college student support services. Our academic program is designed for emerging adults 16-20 years old, who want an opportunity to go to college, but have faced various challenges in completing high school. Students engage in a community of practice exclusively with other GtC students and instructors where they receive comprehensive services, including: tutoring, counseling, health care, and more. Our GtC students attend high school and college classes exclusively at SRJC Petaluma in an academic program that blends high school and college into a cohesive class schedule. Selection of student courses are individualized, guided by the student's personal education plans and lead to the completion of a Petaluma City Schools high school diploma as well as units toward a SRJC college certificate, associate degree, and/or transfer to a university. College enrollment fees are exempted for high school concurrent/dual enrollment students and all required textbooks are provided at no cost to our students. We are located at the SRJC Petaluma campus in Kathleen Doyle Hall, PC 236. For further information, contact us by calling (707) 778-3630 or e-mail Gateway@santarosa.edu
