While this is a good strategy, it is also important to consider opportunities for internships, jobs, mentoring, and networking. Students attending DVC can check all of these boxes.

Some high school students seem to really be ahead of the game, loading up on advanced classes to boost their GPA. One of the benefits of taking advanced placement (AP) classes in high school is that you can then take AP High School Articulation exams that may earn college credit. This is a good idea, but an even better one is to pass high school classes that also can earn you college credit! It’s all made possible through written agreements between high schools and Diablo Valley College.
