Barstow Community College Classes

Springs Charter Schools has partnered with Barstow Community College (BCC) to offer students in grades 9 through 12 with their parents and counselor’s approval the opportunities to advance their College & Career Readiness. This innovative program allows students to earn college credits while fulfilling their graduation requirements, supporting their academic and professional growth.

Barstow Community College has two semesters within the academic year, Fall and Spring. Within each semester, Barstow CC offers two 9-week terms, Fall 1 and Fall 2 and Spring 1 and Spring 2.

High school students may elect to take up to three courses per semester, with a maximum of 11.5 units combined within Term 1 and Term 2.  All classes will be taught by a Barstow Community College (BCC) professor online and are tuition-free. Required course materials, including textbooks, will be loaned to students by Springs Charter Schools.

Barstow Community College will enroll students in their preferred courses based on availability. If the course is full, students will be added to a waitlist.
