On Thursday, May 9 Rowan College at
Gloucester County (RCGC) welcomed high school students, along with their family
and friends, to the College’s annual High School Collegiate Scholars ceremony.
The ceremony was held to
acknowledge the accomplishments of 442 scholars from 23 different high schools
in seven counties who have demonstrated academic excellence as students at RCGC
while concurrently enrolled in high school. Special recognition was given to 26
students who will be walking in two graduation ceremonies this semester – once
for their high school diploma and again for their RCGC associate degree.
With the rising cost of higher
education an issue across the nation, RCGC’s High School Option Program (HSOP)
offers ambitious young men and women a less traditional and much more
affordable approach to higher education. Through HSOP, students from public,
private and home schools across South Jersey, age 15 and older, can take
general education courses at a 65-percent discount to earn college credits
towards an associate degree or easily transfer credits to other institutions of
higher education. For additional information about the High School Option
Program, visit RCGC.edu/DesignYourFuture.
