e-College

  • e-College is an alternative educational program (formerly known as JumpStart) for San Mateo Union High School District students, which combines the high school experience with a myriad of online courses and in-person instruction available at the College of San Mateo (CSM). Successful candidates are self-starters who are ready for college life and more autonomy. Under the direction of the e-College Coordinator, students are allowed to take independent studies courses in conjunction with College of San Mateo courses to meet  graduation requirements for a comprehensive high school diploma while earning college credits. Students retain their rights to participate in athletics, activities, and receive support at their previous school while enrolled in the e-College program. The e-College Coordinator works collaboratively with school site counselors, an onsite wellness counselor and administrators to ensure students meet their fullest potential.

    Attendance is mandatory every Monday and Wednesday at 9-11am at CSM with Ms. Mendez 12-221. Additional advisory times and days are available. Students must also maintain enrollment in a minimum number of college units not to exceed 11.5.

    Students may begin enrolling on November 14.
