“It’s a great benefit to the students,” said Linda Scherr, Middlesex College Vice President for Academic Affairs. “They can graduate high school and be halfway to a bachelor’s degree.”
“This is a very innovative initiative that will greatly benefit our students,” said Jorge E. Diaz, Magnet Schools Superintendent. “It adds to our roster of articulation agreements that allows our students in all career majors to obtain college credits and employment credentials while still in high school.”
Mark McCormick, President of Middlesex College, said the program will save money and time for the students, and it offers another important feature: increased success.
“Our data show that students who take Dual Enrollment classes have a higher retention and success rate in college than students who do not,” he said.
