Whitney High School has partnered with Sierra College to be part of the Sierra Promise! The Sierra Promise helps make students college-ready before they graduate from high school and helps them start college with an education/career plan and access to financial support. All Whitney High School students are eligible. Once a student completes an application for admission to the college, the student will receive an invitation in their mySierra account to "Become a Promise Scholar."
Students who "Become a Promise Scholar" and commit to Sierra Promise can:
Receive help with all the steps to get into college
Get earlier access to college classes
Explore careers and majors
Create a fast-track plan to complete your degree or certificate
Most likely! If you complete your end of the Sierra Promise commitment and are a California resident, you will be eligible to have your first two years of tuition covered through either the California College Promise Grant (need-based) or Two Years Free, also known as the AB2 State Promise Grant (non-need-based).
