Guiding Principles

  • Partnership advances a mission of equity by targeting low income, first-generation, students of color.
  • Partnership activities strive to meet and serve students where they are--at their level of academic need, college awareness, language proficiency, disability, etc.--and are geared toward supporting the success of all participating students.
  • The partnership is reciprocal and sustainable, with resource commitments by the College and the partner schools/districts (example: funding, assigned staff marketing materials).
  • Partners are mutually committed to student success, providing additional resources or services (like tutoring or scheduling flexibility) as needed.
  • Partnership activities are developmentally appropriate, with opportunities for guided exploration and reflection before choosing a concentration.
  • Partnership activities provide realistic information to students regarding the skills and knowledge they need to succeed at the college level.
  • Partnership activities build motivation for entry and success in college through high expectations and aspirations.
  • Partnership activities help to prepare students for college-level work. Partner schools are engaged in curriculum alignment with BHCC [link to curriculum alignment] to build college readiness.
  • BHCC courses offered count toward high school graduation requirements.
  • Offerings are on a path towards a goal: degree, transfer or certificate attainment.
  • Partnership creates a seamless pathway to BHCC.
