• Hoop of Learning

    The Phoenix Union High School District and Maricopa Community Colleges (MCC) created the Hoop of Learning Program for enrolled Native American high school students in grades 9-12 who maintain a 2.0 GPA along with good attendance during their high school careers.

    These students are eligible for college scholarships that pay for books, tuition, fees, classroom supplies, and bus tokens to attend college and career-oriented programs at 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 before they start their MCC courses: Math 092, English 071. and Reading 091.
