Our Mission:

Our mission is to provide learners, who are not on track to graduate, with the opportunity to complete high school and achieve success within a supportive college community

Our Unique and Adaptable Programs include:

  • BridgeThe Bridge program is our popular opportunity for students to enroll in Gateway College and Career Academy after the main semesters have begun. Bridge students have an opportunity to integrate into the school culture, complete partial credits and gain valuable life skills through community enrichment programs. They may also work at an accelerated pace, bringing them closer to their goal, a HS diploma! With a counselor and teacher dedicated to this small group, GCCA’s primary goal for our Bridge students is to get a head start on the next step in your new journey.
  • FoundationFoundation is an intensive 16-week semester with instruction in Math, English and College Readiness Skills. During the foundation semester, students strengthen knowledge in these core areas. All three courses count toward GCCA graduation requirements and the college readiness course also earns students a total of 4 RCC units. Choices between the morning session (8am-12pm) or afternoon session (12:30pm-3pm) allow for a smooth transition into the Gateway way of life. Foundation starts at the first of every major semester; Fall and Spring.
  • TransitionOur transition students have the amazing opportunity to take FREE Riverside City College courses to complete their diplomas, explore their interests and plan to achieve their dreams. While completing the requirements of a diploma, our Transition students enrich their lives with a wide variety of college courses that move them closer to their goals.
