Shasta College Courses
For PCA students interested in building college credits
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. Many PCA high school students incorporate carefully chosen courses at Shasta College as part of their high school coursework. Be sure to talk with your PCA teacher if you would like to explore this option.
Guidelines for Participation
The PCA teacher must give approval and the course(s) must further the student's academic goals.
Students should be in grades 10 or above and have a minimum GPA of 2.0.
PCA will not pay for parking, health center, or other campus-related fees.
The PCA teacher will provide the student with the required forms and the step-by-step procedures required for participation.
