DESCRIPTION:

BERKELEY -- Skyline High School students in Oakland will have the chance to earn an associate of arts degree at Berkeley City College before they graduate high school under a new program starting in the fall, school officials announced Tuesday.

  

"Students always have always been able to take community college classes in high school, but this gives them a real, dedicated structure to do it," said Mark Frey, director of Skyline High School School's Computer Science and Technology Academy.

  

Frey said the nonprofit Career Ladders Project "did some matchmaking" and put his program at Skyline together with Berkeley City College. A $400,000 grant from software company SAP will help with curriculum development, policy, schedule integration, data sharing and academic support services.

  

"The kicker is that you get mentors with SAP and job shadowing," Kristina Palmer, director of program development at Career Ladders, told a group of Skyline High students at Berkeley City College on Tuesday.
