While not mandatory, students are encouraged to take community college courses, outside of those that are a part of our high school curriculum. The goal is to earn college credits while still enrolled in high school and work toward earning an Associate of Arts (AA) or Associate of Science (AS) degree. Please be aware of which courses are UC/CSU transferrable, and within these courses, which ones can be used to meet general education and preparation requirements for a major. Students are encouraged to meet with the LAVC counselor, as well as our own Counseling Office for guidance.
Currently, The Science Academy is partnered with Los Angeles Valley College for our dual enrollment high school classes, but students may concurrently enroll at any of the colleges in the Los Angeles Community College District (LACCD).
