East China School District and SC4 Collaborate to Encourage Post High School Education

East China School District and SC4 are working together to eliminate a step to enroll at SC4. St. Clair and Marine City High seniors will automatically be admitted to SC4 without needing to complete a college application. Eliminating the application step for high school graduates streamlines the transition from high school to college, including encouraging early access to scholarships, advising, and college services.

Beginning with the high school graduating class of 2024, student data from East China School District will be entered into the SC4 data system to permit students to activate an SC4 account and immediately begin enrollment steps for the Fall 2024 college semester.

“East China Schools District is looking forward to be part of this exciting initiative. Marine City and St. Clair High Schools have joined forces with St. Clair County Community College. This partnership aims to provide our youth with unparalleled access to higher education opportunities, allowing them to seamlessly transition college opportunities. By bridging the gap between secondary and post-secondary education, we are empowering our students to excel academically and achieve their full potential,” said Suzanne Cybulla, East China School District Superintendent.

“SC4 and East China School District have collaborated to create a seamless path for all students to have access to higher education. Every student is deserving of the chance to succeed and the commitment of East China School District and SC4 is a positive example of public education working together for families and students,” said Kirk Kramer, President of SC4.

A letter of introduction and explanation of benefits will be sent to graduates in early May, with a follow-up letter on how to activate the SC4 account in the middle of May. Students interested in enrolling at SC4 may contact

The program of automatic admission to SC4 is at no cost to students or the school. Students are not required to enroll. The program includes all students graduating from St. Clair and Marine City High Schools.
