I highly recommend the Gateway to College program for all students who are lacking credits for their high school diploma. The program is so beneficial – it helps you get your diploma and earn college credits at the same time. This program has turned my life around. I never thought it was possible to actually like going to school. One of the reasons I love this program is because I actually feel like someone cares about me and my education.
At Gateway to College, I have a close relationship with my teachers. It also made me open up; by this I mean I am not afraid to ask for help when I need it.
The teachers have office hours so that when you need help they are there for you. Gateway to College has helped me with my attendance as well. I used to never go to school and was a truant, but now I feel like I have the help I need from my teachers and counselor, which makes me a happy student who enjoys being at school every day.
On top of getting your diploma, you earn college credits at the same time. It’s a great opportunity, and I really recommend it to students who have struggled in the past. If you’re worried about transportation, Gateway will help you. Gateway is a fun, comfortable environment to be in. You go on fun field trips and it’s all paid for by the program. Don’t miss out on this opportunity.
