Coast Colleges and Garden Grove Schools
Renew Partnership
For Immediate Release: May 20, 2021

Board of Trustees gathered around a conference table in conversation

Garden Grove high school students will continue to have access to a wide range of free college courses taught by Coastline College, Golden West College, and Orange Coast College faculty under an agreement adopted by the Coast Community College District Board of Trustees on May 19, 2021. The Garden Grove Unified School District Board of Trustees is scheduled to vote on the agreement on June 1, 2021.

During normal years, outside of the pandemic, many of these college-credit courses – transferrable to a student's higher education institution of choice – are taught on-site at local high schools.

The Coast District first entered into a College and Career Access Pathways partnership agreement with Garden Grove Unified School District on November 21, 2018.

The new agreement can be found here. More information for students on dual and concurrent enrollment – including partnerships with Garden Grove Unified School District, Huntington Beach Union High School District, and Newport-Mesa Unified School District – can be found here.

The Coast Community College District is located in Orange County and is among the largest districts in the United States. The District's three colleges – Coastline College, Golden West College, and Orange Coast College – provide traditional degree and transfer opportunities, career and technical training, basic skills, English as a Second Language, and other community programs. Thanks to the Measure M community bond funding approved by voters in 2012, the Coast Colleges are in the midst of a $698 million revitalization of educational and student support infrastructure.
