Our first group of Burlington High School students earned college credits from Bay Path College this week. There are many students taking college courses while in high school across Massachusetts. Most of these students, however, need to leave their high school environment to attend a near by college. BHS students can take advantage of having a four-year, private college co-located in our high school.
We will be collaborating on another course this spring. Our future goals will be to continue to expand the partnership with Bay Path. Our hope is to have students setting goals beyond high school as early in their school careers as possible. These goals will only help improve their decision making while in high school.
Of course none of the student opportunities would be possible without the support and planning of Liz Flemming from Bay Path and Cindy Marchand in our instruction office as well as Patrick Larkin and Joe Attubato from BHS. Thank you.
