ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Thirty-five seventh grade students from the Dougherty County School system got their introduction to university life.

The students were tested today in preparation for classes in the new program with Albany State University next month.   

These students will attend their middle school and high school classes at Albany State.   When they finish the 12th grade, they will not only get their high school diplomas, they'll get credit for their first two years of college.

"Many, many students in the Dougherty County School system who may or may not have college as a plan, and we are opening those doors for that population of students," says Early College Coordinator Barbara Harvey.

Only 35 students are enrolled, but the program can accommodate 60, so the  School System is recruiting seventh graders to fill the program.

If your child is interested in enrolling, call Barbara Harvey at 229-344-2171 to see if they qualify.
