CCPE debuted the Pre-College Summer Academy this year, a dual-enrollment program where high school juniors and seniors each received three units of college credit at CSULB, at no cost. Through a partnership with the College of Liberal Arts and Long Beach Unified School District (LBUSD), 28 students participated by taking one of two available courses: Introduction to Public Speaking and Introduction to Acting. Transportation was provided by LBUSD to bus the students to campus on weekday mornings from July 9 through August 2, adding up to 48 hours of class time and a head start on college. The initiative was inspired by the Long Beach College Promise, launched in 2008 to offer more support for students throughout their educational journey.

Usually, it’s hard to get excited to go to school on Saturday mornings. But for many high school students in the Long Beach Unified School District (LBUSD), the chance to get tuition-free college credit while expanding their minds has spurred them to sit attentively in class over the course of several weekends this past year.
