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.

We look forward to helping you make a seamless transition from high school to college.
