​​​​SAVE YOUR COLLEGE MONEY!

​Opportunity Knocks is a program that grants high school juniors and seniors (or students 16 or older)​ in the Beaverton School District the opportunity to take a credit class at Portland Community College. Students may enrich or extend their learning while gaining college experience and college credit. Tuition is paid for by the Beaverton School District and students eligible for free/reduced lunch will have access to the textbook loan service and Trimet passes.
