Barstow Community College Classes

Take one class and get BOTH High School and College Credit

Barstow Community College and Springs Charter school have a joint mission to assist students to complete college credits while enrolled in high school. Students can earn a high school diploma as well as a college degree.

Start your college journey now for FREE! through Barstow Community Colleges’ Career Ready Academy Dual Enrollment program.

Dual enrollment allows high school students to take college classes. These classes may count for both high school and college credit. High school students who complete dual enrollment classes generally take fewer classes in college and save money on total college costs!

Why wait? You can get started on your AA degree, certificate requirements or begin your general education courses for transfer to Cal State and University of California schools, or 4 year private or out-of-state colleges.

I felt excited and curious while learning about WWII in US History. My teacher was very informative about what had happened and to finish the lesson off, she took us to the Tolerance Museum.
