Rising Scholars Program

The Rising Scholars Program at Mt. San Antonio College seeks to assist students directly impacted by the criminal justice system through education. Students can choose between four (4) educational pathways that would best fit their strengths, desires, & educational/ career goals. The four pathways are High School Diploma/ GED Completion Pathway, Career & Technology Pathway, Associates Degrees Pathway, and/or Four-Year College Transfer Pathway.

Our mission is to ensure you achieve your educational goals and feel supported along your way. Join Rising Scholars
