Save Time and Money - Earn Free College Credits
Students in Career Pathways programs of study during 8th - 12th grade are able to earn college credit, either through assessment or industry certification, which gives them a head start on college. Coursework is not duplicated, so students save time, tuition and the cost of textbooks.
Career Pathways students who succeed in specific career and technical courses at their high school can take an SF College assessment in the spring. They may earn "A", "B" and "Pass" grades on a permanent college transcript.
Students who earn certain industry certifications can also earn college credit on a permanent college transcript.
