Gateway to College (GTC) is an alternative learning program designed for students aged 16 to 21 looking to complete their high school requirements while simultaneously progressing toward a college degree or occupational certificate.


About Gateway to College:

  •   Explore multiple career and technical fields
  •   Continuous progress model

In today’s global economy, more than 80 percent of the fastest growing jobs will require education or training beyond high school.  We are looking for students who have the desire and determination to learn, work hard, and earn a high school diploma and be ready to transition onto higher education.


Please begin the enrollment process by emailing Allison Gooley amgooley@district287.org with your student’s full name, date of birth, and last attended school. Please include whether your student was receiving ELL, special education services, or a 504 Plan.
