Director's Welcome

Christina AlvesAs Director of the Gateway to College program, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our website!  I have been with the program since its inception at Massasoit Community College in 2007, first as a resource specialist working directly with students, and now as an administrator working to ensure longevity of this unique opportunity.  I have worked in higher education at the community college level for over a decade using my passion, experiences and knowledge to empower students to develop as individuals and future leaders.

The Gateway to College program is committed to helping all students achieve their goals by transforming them into lifelong learners.  Under the guidance of resource specialists, as well as a caring team of instructors, students learn the skills they need to succeed- in college, career and life- all while earning a high school diploma and significant college credits.

Our website offers a great deal of information for parents and students. I hope you will visit us often, as our content does change frequently.  To the left are links to important information for students and parents, including the current Gateway to College Academic Calendar with important dates to remember, the Gateway to College Student Policy manual, and the Massasoit Community College Student Code of Conduct.  

Thank you for your interest in the Gateway to College program. Please do not hesitate to call my office at 508- 588-9100,x1687 if I can be of assistance. 

Best regards,
Christina M. Alves
Director, Gateway to College
