Many Early College Options are Available to EL Students

Recently, students Madeline Duff, Sophie Bilodeau, and Katherine Gilpatrick spoke to the Eddies Echo about their experiences taking advantage of Early College options available to them through partnerships between Edward Little and local colleges.

Students were able to get a jump start on college and save money on college courses while still getting support from academic counseling options at the high school. Some students jumped completely into the college experience, while others took a few classes at a college while still attending EL. They were also still able to take advantage of sports, clubs, and extra-curriculars at EL while pursuing college options.

If this is an opportunity that interests you, speak to Mr. Horn in Aspirations or your guidance counselor.
