ROCHESTER — A dozen students from Spaulding High School will spend part of their senior year taking classes for high school and college credit at Great Bay Community College’s Advanced Technology & Academic Center in Rochester.
After a careful selection process, including placement testing, students will be registered for classes in the Advanced Composite Certificate program. Beginning in the fall, they will take classes at Spaulding in the morning, and be on campus at Great Bay in Rochester from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday to Friday, from September through April.
“The last two months they will take the final course for the certificate at the high school, so will finish at the same time as the high school calendar year,” said Debra Mattson, director of the Advanced Technology & Academic Center. “Students will be earning both high school and college credits. Once they are able to demonstrate high school completion, they will matriculate into the ACM program and receive their college certificate.”
