At the last City Council meeting there was an interesting presentation about a program at the College of Alameda that will be starting up this fall.
It’s a really exciting program that pledges to pay for Alameda high school students all first year costs at the College of Alameda including a stipend for books for full-time students.
The first year is a pilot year which will start with students attending ASTI and Encinal High School. The second year will include Island High. The final year will include Alameda High.
The great thing about the program is that the College of Alameds has a partnership with Cal State East Bay which will streamline students that want to transfer and, according to the president of CoA they’re attempting to set up a similar relationship with Berkeley.
For more information, here’s a short video that was shown at the City Council meeting:
