Students Ahead of the Game
Local 8 Now Friday May 6, 2016

34 students in Roane County will graduate high school with an Associates Degree. These students participated in the inaugural Middle College Program at Roane State Community College. High school juniors in this program take a full load at Roane State in addition to their regular high school program. Of course, taking on the extra workload does result in lost opportunities as a high school student, but one of the participants described it as worth it. This coming fall, these 34 students will be attending university has college juniors, with a Bachelors degree within reach in only two years. This program was offered in Roane and Anderson counties this school year; next year, Middle College will be available in Morgan and Anderson Counties.
Cumberland County offers a similar option to its high school students. Students have to opportunity to enroll in dual-enrollment classes (in which they receive the necessary high school credit, in addition to the reciprocating college credit) through Roane State, or take specific CTE classes at our TCAT campus starting their junior years. Seniors in Cumberland County can also graduate early, in which all required credits are acquired by the end of the first semester of senior year; second semester, those students are allowed to withdraw after going through all the preparation and paperwork, but they must attend a college or university as a full-time student.
