Approximately 20 West Brunswick High School stu
I dents will be taking college courses at Brunswick Com
j munity College this year while completing their senior
j year of high school.
About 10 students each will be enrolled in cosmetol
I riov and electronics courses.
"Those are vocational offerings we don't have," said
West Brunswick Principal Ed Lemon. "We really love

The arrangement gives the students a jump start on
their college education, while providing high school
elective courses in which they have a personal interest
and which would otherwise not be available.
High school students may take community college
classes under several different articulation arrangements
that allow them to take advanced classes or to take voca
tional or technical courses not offered at their high local
A new "Tech Prep" program allows students to plan
ahead for continuity of courses and credit from high
school to two-year curriculum programs at the commu
nity college, earning dual credits on certain classes taken
while in high school.
"1 think the sky is the limit with what we can do
with that program in the future," said W. Michael
Reaves, BCC president.
Under many circumstances, students can receive
both high school and college course credits for classes
they complete successfully. That will be the case for
these 20 West Brunswick students, though most don't
need the additional credits to graduate.
Lemon said the majority will graduate with more
than 20 credits, and that poor performance in the BCC
classes will not keep them from graduating from high
The program also offers students another real-life
transition from high school to college ? no policing by
school officials to go to class or to get their work done.
"In regard to these classes, we told them they will be
treated like college students,"
said Lemon. "There will be
none of the calling or warn
ing like we do at the high
school," said Lemon. "On
that end they will be treated
like college students."
As of last week, the stu
dents still had to complete
the ASSET, BCC's place
ment process, but were ex
pected to place into the ap
propriate classes given their
high school coursework.
This isn't the first cooper
ative effort between BCC and West Brunswick. Several
years ago BCC offered a college-level English classes
on the West Brunswick campus. Students could earn
college credit for the class, but not dual credit. They still
had to complete their senior English requirement at the
Lemon said he is eager to see more of this type of
cooperative program, both with BCC and with local
business and industry.
One committee of the school's Performance-Based
Accountability planning group has been given the job of
trying to iron out details of an apprenticeship program.
As apprentices, students could receive pay and class
credit for on-the-job training.
Apprenticeships in fields such as bricklaying or
plumbing would be a way of providing more advanced
work skills training for students not going to college.
"What we're trying to do is meet the needs of all the
kids," he said.
