Interested in Taking College Classes While in High School?

EGUSD students have an exciting opportunity to participate in Advanced Education. Advanced Education is intended to provide high school students with educational enrichment opportunities at the community college level. Current high school students who are interested in taking classes at one of the Los Rios Community Colleges (ARC, CRC, FLC, or SCC) may enroll in a maximum of two (2) college courses each semester (summer, fall and spring).


  • Students are 16 years old, or have already completed 10th grade by the first day college classes start.

Education Code 48800(a)

The governing board of a school district may determine which pupils would benefit from advanced scholastic or vocational work. The intent of this section is to provide educational enrichment opportunities for a limited number of eligible pupils, rather than to reduce current course requirements of elementary and secondary schools, and also to help ensure a smoother transition from high school to college for pupils by providing them with greater exposure to the collegiate atmosphere. The governing board of a school district may authorize those pupils, upon recommendation of the principal of the pupil’s school of attendance, and with parental consent, to attend a community college during any session or term as special part-time or full-time students and to undertake one or more courses of instruction offered at the community college level.
