WHAT IS THE SHASTA PROMISE?
A few years ago, six local colleges signed a pledge to take the uncertainty out of college applications for local students. In partnership with the North State Promise, the Shasta Promise guarantees admission and includes things like tuition breaks and fast-track class enrollment for Shasta County students who meet the basic criteria.

Reach Higher Shasta works to create clear pathways from our children’s first day in the cradle to their first day on the job. We ensure they’re ready for kindergarten, motivated and supported through elementary, middle and high school, and assisted in the transition to career training or college. Along the way we connect them to caring adults and generous business partners who serve as mentors, guides and coaches. We collect data that measures what’s working and what needs to change. We believe every student deserves every option. And we know that their success will change the future of our community. Read more about Reach Higher’s history, accomplishments and partners.
