High School Programs

Skyline College works closely with high schools throughout the Bay Area to create curriculum for K-12 teachers and students interested in environmental ENVSand sustainability topics. A high school teacher network provides an ongoing support structure for high school teachers who need curriculum assistance in sustainability and clean energy topics.

In partnership with Strategic Energy Innovations, two High School Sustainability Certificates have been created to provide a pathway into the Colleges’ clean energy and green building education programs. Completion of each Certificate provides high school students with the opportunity to earn College credit from the San Mateo Community College District.
