High School Partnerships


Clark College's service district includes more than 15 public school districts, and more than half of our students come directly from local high schools. For that reason, Clark College supports strategic partnerships that guide a student's successful path to college. 

Through our Tech Prep, Healthcare Core, and College in the High Schools programs students can prepare for a higher education while still enrolled in High School.

Getting a Head Start On a College Education

Students benefit from participating in Dual Enrollment programs, which allows them to take college-level courses and earn college credits while in high school. The rigor and content of dual enrollment courses are matched to those at Clark to ensure students receive the training they need to advance through to completion, essentially giving them a head start at Clark. 

Students in dual enrollment programs earn certificates or associate degrees which align to create pathways to jobs, bachelor's degrees, and more. 

Tech Prep

The Tech Prep program puts high school students on the pathway to a degree from Clark College. Students complete selected Career & Technical Education classes while still in high school. This unique partnership between Clark College and participating area high schools allows students to earn high school and college credits at the same time.
