High School Partnership Program

Program Purpose:

The HSPP seeks to improve student postsecondary performance by establishing a 360-degree partnership between Saddleback College, students, parents or guardians, and high schools, that will help students prepare for success after high school.

By following the recommended pathways and collaborative roles identified in the High School Partnership Program, Saddleback College can guarantee that a student will succeed in fulfilling their goals at an institution of higher learning, the workforce, or the military.

What will we do?

Saddleback promises that high school students who fully follow the recommended pathways to success-

  • Understand the expectations of the community college system,
  • Understand and complete the requirements for preparation into a community college,
  • Have greater success and completion rates in college courses.

What will students do?

Students will develop study skills to help them be successful in college, establish career and academic goals, and complete transferable or basic skills English and math courses.  Moreover, prior to high school graduation students will be able to complete a college applied psychology course, the college’s matriculation process, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), and a Saddleback College academic plan.  Finally, not only will student have registered for fall semester college courses, but will be prepared for success in those classes.

Saddleback College looks forward to working with our partner high schools for the success of our students.
