Gateway to College

Earn Your High School Diploma at Westminster Campus


The Gateway to College National Network was part of the Early College High School Initiative originally funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. It has now joined Achieving the Dream, a national nonprofit dedicated to helping community college students succeed. In this program, you will earn your high school diploma as well as some college credits, coupled with an intense and robust support structure.

  • The program covers tuition and books for up to 14 credits per semester, while students pay their student fees. 
  • Students must meet all program requirements to continue participating in the program.
  • All classes are held at the Westminster Campus of Front Range Community College.
