CCPE debuted the Pre-College Summer Academy this year, a dual-enrollment program where high school juniors and seniors each received three units of college credit at CSULB, at no cost. Through a partnership with the College of Liberal Arts and Long Beach Unified School District (LBUSD), 28 students participated by taking one of two available courses: Introduction to Public Speaking and Introduction to Acting. Transportation was provided by LBUSD to bus the students to campus on weekday mornings from July 9 through August 2, adding up to 48 hours of class time and a head start on college. The initiative was inspired by the Long Beach College Promise, launched in 2008 to offer more support for students throughout their educational journey.
