SAN MARCOS, Calif. — Like many American high school seniors, Rynon Reyes is looking ahead to college with a mix of apprehension and excitement.

While their counterparts in most of the rest of the country are already facing the first of what will likely be an endless succession of bills for college, Reyes and his fellow students at Mission Hills High School in this city north of San Diego can get associate’s degrees or certificates tuition-free, along with help paying for their textbooks.
