The Foothill College Early College Promise (FCECP) represents an exciting opportunity for AVID students at Mountain View, Los Altos, Alta Vista* and Palo Alto High Schools to get a jump start on college success.
Foothill College Early College Promise is designed to support AVID* students in reaching their educational goals of obtaining a bachelor's degree. Early exposure to college courses prepares high school students for the rigors and expectations of college coursework.
Several courses offered in this program support specific pathways to careers such as the Law Pathway, which is designed for students interested in pursuing a career in the legal and justice systems.
Other courses may be taken to meet the general education entrance requirements of the California State University (CSU) and University of California (UC) systems.
Interested AVID* students must complete the following:
Our FCECP program is a partnership between Foothill College and Mountain View-Los Altos High School District and Palo Alto High School. The partnership is committed to supporting the educational goals of AVID students through early exposure to the college experience, while completing transferrable college credits prior to graduating high school.
Studies have shown that high school students who participate in dual enrollment programs do better and graduate more frequently at 4-year colleges than their counterparts.
*Alta Vista High School students are eligible for the FCECP regardless of their participation in AVID.
