Herman@s Connection to College (C2C) Program
The goal of Herman@s Connection to College (C2C) Program is to increase the number
of Latinx students graduating from high school and enrolling in higher education.
In partnership with Parkway Heights Middle School, South San Francisco High School,
and Capuchino High School, Herman@s Connection to College (C2C) Program is committed
to providing structured support to the Latinx community beginning in middle school
and continuing through the end of their senior year and enrollment in higher education.
Students begin in 8th grade by attending college & career awareness and preparation workshops. Then, during the spring semester of their sophomore year, students start taking dual enrollment college courses. They continue taking one college course every fall and spring semester until they graduate from high school. Wrap-around structured support takes place in the form of the following program components: dual enrollment in one college course per semester, parent workshops, intentional monitoring of student progress, access to quality instruction and counseling services.
The program pillars are designed to develop the following:
- Leadership Development
- Academic Success
- Career Exploration
