Morehead State University’s Early College Program held its summer faculty meeting with nearly 60 high school faculty instructors that will participate in the 2017-18 school year.

More than 60 high schools and area technology centers will offer MSU classes with nearly 3,000 high school students participating in the program in the upcoming year.

Qualifying students are given the opportunity to prepare for the future while attending high school. In the program, students may enroll in a course taught in their high school and receive college credit for successful completion.

The program allows qualified high school faculty, who meet accreditation standards, to teach the University courses.

Each course offered at the high school has the approximate cost savings of $1,000 per student while also allowing students to graduate from college up to a semester or more sooner.  Students are more prepared for college success by doing college level academic work during their junior and senior years of high school.

School systems taking part are: Bath, Boyd, Breathitt, Bullitt, Carter, Clark, Estill, Fayette, Fleming, Floyd, Grant, Jefferson, Jessamine, Johnson, Lawrence, Lewis, Martin, Mason, Mercer, Montgomery, Morgan, Oldham, Owen, Pike, Powell, Rowan, Shelby, and Wolfe and Woodford counties; as well as Ashland Blazer, Fairview, Jackson, Lexington Catholic, Lexington Christian, Raceland, Russell, Somerset, St. Patrick’s independents and Lakeside Christian.
