A Brief History of College Career Pathways
College Career Pathways is a national program that attempts to better connect high school students with college. The program was designed in the 1980s in an attempt to reach the middle majority of students who were not reaching their potential in high school.
How the Program Works
A student at a public high school in the Tunxis Community College service area who is interested in the below career areas can fill out the College Career Pathways application during the first semester of 11th grade. Please check with your guidance counselor to see if you qualify for this program.
During 11th and 12th grade, students take courses that have been approved by the high school and Tunxis. Upon successful completion of the courses, students receive college credit for the courses completed in high school.
