The statewide program is co-sponsored by the University of California Office of Educational Partnerships, and is headquartered at UC Berkeley.

PUENTE is a 4-year program that REQUIRES a 4-year commitment. Therefore, once admitted, students are expected to participate for all 4 years and will not be able to join any other academy or program.

PREVIOUS Announcements

We are making every effort to ensure that our students continue to meet the rigorous demands of the Puente Project, including, but not limited to, satisfying the A-G requirements.  Our foremost expectation is that students receive a "C" or better in all of their college prep courses.  Students who are not meeting this requirement will be placed on a contract in hopes of helping them improve their grades.  Students earning at least a 3.0 GPA (cumulative & weighted) in their A-G courses are exempt from this contract. 

 

THOSE WHO CONTINUOUSLY FAIL TO EARN A "C" OR BETTER IN THEIR A-G COURSES WILL BE REMOVED FROM THE PROGRAM INDEFINITELY   

 

Please contact Mrs. Wise if you feel your son or daughter may not be able to meet this requirement.
