The Phoenix Union High School District and Maricopa Community College District (MCCD) formed a partnership many years ago to create the Hoop of Learning Program.
Hoop of Learning is a program for enrolled Native American high school students 9-12 grade who maintain a 2.0 GPA along with good attendance during their high school careers.
These students are eligible for college scholarships that will pay for books, tuition, fees, classroom supplies, and bus tokens to attend Phoenix College, Gateway Community College, South Mountain Community College or Glendale Community College.
Eligible students will take a college assessment test to determine their skill levels in reading, writing and math. All students must successfully complete or test out of the following courses: Math 092, English 071 and Reading 091 before they start their career courses.
The following programs are offered at Phoenix College, South Mountain, and Gateway
