What is ROP?
An ROP is a public education service that provides practical, hands-on career preparation and career guidance. East San Gabriel Valley ROP/TC is one of 72 ROPs in the state of California. The ROP is designed to provide high school and adult students with the technical skills required for particular jobs. Community-based internships, in local business and industry sites, are offered in many classes. Every course offers a unit on employment-seeking skills, which includes the job application, resume, and interview preparation.
What are ESGVROP/TC’s School Accreditation and Why Does It Matter?
Accreditation is a very important part of choosing a quality school. It's your assurance that the institution upholds standards set forth by an independent accrediting agency that is recognized by the United States Department of Education. In order to receive accreditation, a school must meet specific requirements and be approved by an official review board that certifies its strict adherence to the accrediting body's standards of academic and institutional criteria.
ESGVROP/TC is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) and the Commission of the Council on Occupational Education (COE).
The Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) is located at 533 Airport Blvd., Suite200, Burlingame, CA 94010, www.acswasc.org.

Why take ROP?
Experience is the best teacher. ESGVROP/TC can help you obtain the experience needed to acquire a job of your choice, or help you update your existing skills, or train in a new field. ESGVROP/TC prepares students to gain employment to assist them with the ever-increasing costs of college; the ROP also promotes further advanced education in particular career areas.
What is the cost?
High school students do not pay any registration fees.
Where are ROP classes located?
Classes meet at local high school sites and the Del Norte Campus, as well as business and industry sites. After basic classroom instruction, every attempt is made to provide internships near the student's home. Adult students are also provided with an opportunity to participate at internship sites.
Are you paid while in an ROP class?
The ROP is a career preparation program; students are not paid while enrolled in class. However, Cooperative Courses combine paid employment with weekly classroom instruction in order to provide advanced training to students who have attained employment. Check the schedule for occupational areas offering this option.
Can you earn high school credits in an ROP class?
Upon successful completion of an ROP course, credits and grades may be issued and applied toward high school graduation.
Why should I take ROP if I'm going to college?
Whether a student plans to enroll in a university or college, or directly enter the workforce, effective job skills and experience are an asset. ROP courses may provide students with an edge in obtaining entrance into a variety of related college and university majors. Upon graduation, high school students can transfer into the ESGVROP/TC Post-Secondary certificate and Associate of Applied Science degree program. In addition, ESGVROP/TC has entered into articulation agreements with the following community colleges and private post-secondary institutions: Citrus College, Rio Hondo College, Mt. San Antonio College, Mt. Sierra College, Pacific Oaks, Westwood College, DeVry, and ITT Tech. These agreements permit students, who have successfully completed selected courses, to enroll in training programs at the community college, without having to repeat previously covered materials.
