Document Number: 6126Designing and Financing an Integrated Program of College Study: Lessons from the California Academy of Liberal Studies - This report examines how the California Academy for Liberal Studies and Los Angeles Trade-Technical College provide an articulated program allowing students to begin college-level work by grade 10 or 11. The authors provide information on the schoolís curriculum, tutoring and mentoring supports, location and mutual history, as well as the early college high schoolís budget and staffing model, all of which support this successful program. Chart two (page seven) makes clear the savings that can be realized by substituting college for high school courses. The brief also suggests how this programís design may be used as a model for other school developers.
