“Creating A Greater Awareness Of Educational Opportunities For Students and Parents”
The Collegiate Academy is a collaborative effort between Merced College, University of California Merced, California State University Stanislaus, and local high schools. Its purpose is to create a greater awareness of higher education opportunities and to increase college and University eligibility and matriculation rates of historically disadvantaged students in the Merced area.
The Collegiate Academy offers a wide range of services to identified 9-12 grade students who are enrolled in college preparatory courses at one of our nine local high schools, including the development of a four year academic program. Completion of this program ensures academic eligibility to apply to a college or university.
Other services include:
Students will receive these services throughout their
high school years.
