“This program will allow high school students to experience a higher education. Our goal is to keep students motivated and encourage them to continue pursuing their education right here at San Diego Miramar College,” said President Patricia Hsieh.
Mira Mesa High School will recommend students for the pilot program and a final selection of five will be made by Miramar College counselors and subject-area experts.
College-level courses available in the 2015-16 academic year will include calculus and political science.
To be eligible to apply for the program, the student would need a 3.8 overall GPA, have completed honors pre-calc with a B or higher, or take and pass the Miramar Math Department challenge test.
They will also need to take the English Accuplacer to assure they are ready to take on college-level coursework. A program application would also need to be submitted.
