Early College Credit for High School Students

Peralta’s High School Special Enrollment provides enrichment opportunities for high school students who can benefit from college-level instruction. In addition to college credit, students can explore a variety of career options that are being offered by BCC Career Education Programs.  

Each College may admit a number of high school students entering 9th grade or above who have exceptional ability, or who desire specialized or advanced training. Admission to the college requires approval from your high school counselor. **Other high-school students may be admitted on the basis of a contractual arrangement between the District and the high school of attendance (PCCDBP 5010).
