Academic Lab

Academic Lab is a valuable tool for achieving educational success as it provides the environment and resources students need to conduct research, complete homework, and receive assistance on school projects. The Shasta College Gateway to College program requires students to attend Academic Lab as part of their regular school schedule.

Make-Up Time

Students are also required to make up time for any high school class missed—regardless of the reason—within two weeks of the absence. Make-up Time must occur outside of regular school hours and is calculated based on the following criteria:

  • 1 school day missed = 3 hours of make-up time
  • 1 class period missed = 1 hour of make-up time
  • 2 tardies = 1 hour of make-up time

Students will have access to the main GtC classroom and/or the computer lab for Academic Lab and Make-Up Time. Students may also be permitted to use the English, Math and Science tutoring centers or the library on campus if approved by the staff member overseeing the activity.

I am grateful for the GtC staff being kind and understanding, and giving me a chance to grow.
