Concurrent College Coursework
Here, at PCA, we believe in encouraging our students to maximize their potential. Concurrent College Coursework, offered at Phoenix Charter Academy, is a program that allows students to enroll in Shasta Community College courses without being formally admitted to Shasta Community College. Concurrent College Coursework opens the door for future careers and sets students up for success, as an adult, by offering career training and much more.
College OPTIONS helps students of all ages and their families in Shasta, Siskiyou, Tehama, and Trinity counties make informed choices about post-high school education by providing advisors in the schools, confidential financial aid advising, free workshops, and up-to-date informational material.
There is no "magic bullet” for scholarships. It takes time, research, and effort. However, it is effort that can literally pay off. College OPTIONS is working to create materials on their website to improve your access to and ability to secure scholarships. (Note to parents: your student is the person who should be doing this research and the applications.)
