Panther Pipeline is a dual-enrollment partnership program between the Met and Sacramento City College. Through this program students can not only earn college credits while enrolled in high school, but they also meet with a college counselor each semester to create an education plan that continues beyond high school. If students are deemed ready by Met staff, they may start the Panther Pipeline program as early as the second semester of their 9th grade year. There are currently six college courses offered on The Met campus each year, and students have access to courses on the main campus of the college as well. All Panther Pipeline classes are tuition-free. This is an excellent opportunity for students to take the next step in their educational career.
