Oakland Technical Early College is a rigorous three-year program offering high school students an early start in post-secondary training to better prepare them for high-skill, high-demand and high-wage careers.
Oakland Schools Technical Campuses have partnered with Oakland Community College to combine early college opportunities with many of our career technical programs.
During the 11th and 12th grades, students take high school requirements, an OSTC program and college courses that align with a technical degree. Students attend Oakland Community College full-time during an added 13th year, completing their high school diploma and potentially earning an associate degree.
The cost for college tuition and books are covered for participants in this program. Students and their families are responsible for transportation to Oakland Community College.
