Program Pathways is an initiative between Anne Arundel Community College (AACC) and Anne Arundel County Public Schools (AACPS) to support successful transition of students from high school to college and careers. It is an exciting opportunity for high school students to earn free AACC credit for successfully completing high school career and technology programs. 

Plans of Study are visual guides demonstrating how high school pathways can move into corresponding college degree or certificate programs at AACC. Related college credit earned in high school and meeting AACC program requirements is symbolized on each Plan of Study.

AACC also supports high school signature and magnet programs. View our posters for information on the college programs related to your high school signature program.
