Gateway to College
Do you need a high school diploma?
Do you want to go to college?
Gateway to College offers a real second chance to earn your high school diploma at the St. Louis Community College. Gateway to College is a new scholarship program for students, ages 16 to 20, who have dropped out or are on the verge of dropping out of high school in the Ferguson-Florissant, Ritenour, Normandy and Riverview school districts. The program allows students to earn a high school diploma while earning college credit toward an associate degree or certificate. Tuition and book costs are covered by the program and all classes will meet on the Florissant Valley campus of St. Louis Community College.
It's all about education. In today's global economy, more than 80 percent of the fastest growing jobs will require education or training beyond high school. Additionally, adults without at least a high school diploma are twice as likely to be unemployed. Therefore, without at least a high school diploma, options are limited.
Gateway to College is an educational alternative for out-of-school youth who may not have had success in other learning environments. We are looking for students who have the desire and determination to learn, work hard, and earn a high school diploma and a college degree.
Where will a Gateway to College education take you? You decide.
