High school offering college-level programs

January 18, 2007

Albany - - Monroe High School is introducing a new program to the community that will give students real-work experience.

The school invited city and county leaders along with representatives from the State Department of Education to tour its new Center of Excellence. The new building offers a variety of options for students, like technology skills, engineering, and agriculture.  

"They are getting hands on experience. They don't have to just do the book work and look at videos, they get a chance to do live work. Having the new facility, we have business and industry people who are wanting to come in and share with us all the time," says Patricia Jackson.

Administrators at the school plan to continue a working relationship with the business community.

Students in the new program can also apply for college credit through Albany Technical College.
