THE BEACON PROGRAM

 
General Information
Description of ProgramFormerly called the Excelsior Program, will now be referred to as The Beacon Program, Illuminating the Pathway to College and Career for High School Students. The Beacon Program offers a concurrent enrollment program that allows high school juniors and seniors to take the College's courses at their high school campus during their regular school hours, while simultaneously working toward high school graduation. College credits earned through the Beacon Program can be applied toward high school graduation and accepted at the College or transferred to a multitude of other colleges and universities. Enrollment in a course offered through the Beacon Program generates an official college academic transcript for each student. Acceptance of credit for college-level course work is under the domain of the receiving colleges and universities. The program is designed to provide curricular opportunity and enhancement of the college experience, but not its replacement. Therefore, students may enroll in no more than 30 college credits earned through the Beacon Program. Call for more detailed information.
