Vermont high school students will have access to college courses. Under the Flexible Pathways Act, high school students will be able to receive credits from Vermont Academy of Science and Technology (VAST), Burlington, College, Castleton State College, Community College of Vermont, Johnson State College and Lyndon State College.

Governor Peter Shumlin said: “Ensuring more Vermont students have exposure to higher education is critical to supporting student and their families in reaching their dreams.”

Chancellor Tim Donovan added: ‘This state is dealing with an economic and civic imperative. Too few students go on to a post secondary experience. We are committed to building the strong partnerships with high schools that will allow these early college programs to play a critical role in addressing the challenge.”

Studies have found that early college courses improve grade point average, improve college enrollment and help students adjust to college level programs.
