Early College Program Approved for TCAPS by State

High schools in Traverse City will soon offer a new program designed to give more students the chance to excel academically.

The early college program was just approved for Traverse City Area Public Schools.

The five-year program lets students in grades nine through 11 earn college degrees at Northwest Michigan College, while still in high school. Two pathways are available including, liberal arts and sciences and science, technology, engineering and mathematics or STEM.

TCAPS are very excited about the program as well as students.

About 80 students will be the first to try out the program this fall.
