Seniors Earn Associate Degrees
Posted on 05/13/2021
Early College Program Graduates

On Thursday, May 13th, 8 of JSHS seniors became the first cohort of students graduating from the Early College Program. This was the first group of students to participate in the program that allows students to earn their associate's degree while earning their high school diploma at the same time.

The program, which starts in the students' junior year,  has the students taking high school courses in the morning and then attending Bergen Community College in the afternoon.  Students completing the program have the ability to enroll in a 4 year college program as a junior straight out of high school both shortening the duration they are in school to complete an advanced degree and, since the district currently covers 1/2 the tuition, making college more affordable for students.

The students completing the program this year are:

Vanessa Conversano
Brianna Gordon
Alan Gottlieb
Rodney Lopez
Isabel Martinez
Daniel Santiago
Sydney Steadman
Daniella Torres
