S.T.A.R.T Program

The AT&T TCU/HS Completion Project is a grant funded opportunity made available through the American Indian College Fund. In its efforts, Tohono O’odham Community College (TOCC) has implemented the project to focus on two areas within our partnership: Dual Enrollment and the Students Thriving, Achieving and Rising Together (S.T.A.R.T.) Program. The college has created the S.T.A.R.T. after school program at Baboquivari High School (BHS) to focus on current freshmen, sophomores, and juniors. Through this program, staff members have concentrated on students who are in need of academic support and encouragement to be on track to graduate from high school and prepare them with all necessary resources for their success. The core of the program includes tutoring sessions held at the high school and five pillars for success:

  • Personal Growth & Expression

  • College & Career Awareness

  • Academic & Life Skill Preparation

  • Community Building & Belonging

  • Global & Civic Engagemen

Dual Enrollment

Through Tohono O’odham Community College’s Dual Enrollment Program, high school students can get a jump start on college by earning college credits while attending high school.

Dual Enrollment Program

The Dual Enrollment program has been designed to be a bridge for high schools and the community college. Students who are enrolled in the program, excel in specific courses designed to provide convenience, support, and academic rigor for high school students. The Dual Enrollment Program has provided many opportunities for students to accomplish writing, reading, language, history and math requirements for TOCC and state universities.

Juniors and Seniors are welcome to register in the program and receive concurrent academic credit for the course from both the college and the high school. The Dual Enrollment courses are taught on the TOCC Campus or on the high school campus only. The courses that are offered are aligned with TOCC curriculum. A student who successfully completes a course will be awarded college credit.
