South Bay Promise    

south bay promise image        In the fall of 2018, with the help of the El Camino College Foundation and South Bay community partners, the South Bay Promise will be available for all high school seniors in the El Camino Community College District. Enrollment fees for the first year will be paid for up to 500 high school graduates who commit to attending El Camino College full-time (12 units) in the fall immediately following graduation and complete the necessary matriculation steps to ensure success. The South Bay Promise hopes to attract high school seniors to El Camino College at little or no cost to them.


Through the South Bay Promise, students will go from high school directly to El Camino College with the choice of two pathways: transfer to a four-year university or career technical education.

"I am the first to attend college in my family. Going to college wasn't on my radar until I heard about the South Bay Promise program from my counselor. El Camino College has been great; I plan to major in Kinesiology."
