VAAS Scholars Dual Enrollment

Yes! I want to take college classes!
VAAS has partnered with Los Angeles City College to offer dual enrollment classes during the school day (VAAS Scholars) and afterschool. Students who are enrolled at LACC can take classes anywhere in the Los Angeles Community College District. It's like LACC is your VAAS, but you can take classes anywhere in LAUSD.
Because of our partnership with LACC, their counselors assist VAAS with enrollment and student issues. If you enroll at another community college as your home school (like VAAS), we cannot communicate on your behalf. If your home school is another community college, we can assist with the transfer to LACC.
Although students are not required to enroll at LACC for their home school, we strongly recommend it for the additional support LACC provides VAAS students.
Something to keep in mind, dual enrollment classes are only open to high school students. Regular classes are open to all college students, including adults, other high school students, and even your parents (if they want to take the class with you!).
If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Petrossian at
