What is the Academy?

  • The Mt. SAC Academy is a small high school with an innovative design blending high school and college in a rigorous, yet supportive program that compresses the time needed to complete a high school diploma and up to 2 years of transferable general education college credits

  • It is a four-year college preparatory educational program strategically designed to fulfill “a-g” college admission requirements, prepare students for the college transition and make students competitively eligible for admission to UC, Cal State and other institutions of higher learning

  • College courses are offered during the school day, taught by college instructors and students receive college credit through dual enrollment with Mt. SAC  

  • Students take semester and year-long courses

  • High school and college classes are taught in a 90 block format M-Th and all high school classes meet on Fridays

  • In a supportive environment of high expectations, respect,  and academic excellence, students will earn transferable college credit while in high school and will be prepared to pursue post-secondary opportunities
