    Pre-College provides a perfect platform to expand your knowledge, grow as an individual, develop strong portfolio pieces, and get a taste of college life. While taking courses on CCA's beautiful and historic Oakland campus, you can explore the San Francisco Bay Area's rich culture and geography.

    Students earn 3 units of college credit upon successful completion of the program. An official report documenting your letter grade(s) and credits earned will be mailed to you at the end of August. Absences will affect your grade; three absences result in automatic failure.
