SCHENECTADY - For years, SUNY Schenectady has partnered with Schenectady High to offer students the chance at college credit. Now, they're partnering with the Brown School, a private school in Schenectady, to give students the chance to earn an associate's degree before they graduate high school.
Brown High School students have a chance to earn two diplomas, their high school diploma and their associate's degree. Tuition and supplies are covered with Brown's normal cost of attendance.
Some students have already started taking courses virtually because of the pandemic, but during their junior and senior years, they will take courses on the SUNY Schenectady campus.
While they will be taking some general ed classes, the learning will also be geared towards their interests.
Learn about the programs being offered to students, and the support they will get by watching the video of Sam Hesler’s story.
