One of nine campuses in the Los Angeles Community College District, LATTC serves thousands of students in the Los Angeles area pursuing post-secondary education and certification. Although a large proportion of students pursue technical training at LATTC, students can also get Associate's Degrees and choose to transfer to a four-year university. Nearly half of LATTC students also work a minimum of 30 hours per week at jobs outside of school.
In order to increase student success in balancing their academic and professional lives, as well as to provide a framework for success following college, LATTC has created what it calls the Pathway system. The school currently offers six Pathways, each focusing on a different area of study: Advanced Transportation and Manufacturing; Construction, Maintenance and Utilities; Design and Media Arts; Health Sciences; Liberal Arts; and Culinary and Cosmetology Arts. Each Pathway program combines a multitude of courses, activities, and supportive resources designed to equip students with the skills, knowledge, certifications, and credentials they need to see their own pathway culminate in career success.
Golden Opportunities Provided and Recognized
Each semester, the Gold Thimble Fashion Show provides graduating fashion students with an opportunity to design clothing, compete with fellow fashion students, and see their work on models walking down a real runway.
