Film & Television Production

LA Trade Technical College
LA Promise Charter High School currently partners with Los Angeles Trade Technical College (LATTC) to provide dual enrollment opportunities to students. The LATTC dual enrollment program affords students the opportunity to enroll in a collegiate level course taught by a community college instructor. Students that pass will receive college credit for the appropriate digital media course offered at LATTC.
The dual enrollment program exposes high school students to the rigors of post-secondary education, advances the instructional goal of cultivating a college going culture, and rewards students who persist with college credit, thereby decreasing the cost of obtaining a college degree.
