PATHWAY: ENGINEERING SCIENCES
Early College High School
The mission of the Clean Technologies & Sustainable Industries Early College High School is to develop and support pathways to higher education that lead to careers in STEM fields for students through rigorous academic programming and a collaborative approach to learning. A network of K-12, higher education, business and industry partners has been developed to provide students with the highest level of education and support for entering and succeeding in the clean energy fields.
The Clean Technologies & Sustainable Industries Early College High School is an innovative program that provides high school students with transdisciplinary learning and 21st Century skill sets necessary to make informed decisions as they relate to college and career readiness. Students have the advantage of being in a fully connected and collaborative learning environment. Students work at their own pace and leverage 1:1 technology to access individualized academic support, master program expectations, and develop college and career readiness. With support from regional economic leaders, including the Center for Economic Growth (CEG), Saratoga Economic Development Corporation (SEDC) and local Chambers of Commerce, the program connects with hundreds of businesses throughout the region that serve as assets for students and represents a robust fusion of education, business and industry collaborating to train students to become innovators and leaders for the jobs of tomorrow.
Early college high schools blend high school and college in a rigorous yet supportive program, compressing the time it takes to complete a high school diploma and the first two years of college. Students in the Clean Technologies & Sustainable Industries Early College High School Program take both high school and college level coursework on a college campus at Hudson Valley Community College’s TEC-SMART campus located in Malta, NY.
What is Engineering Sciences?
The degree program parallels the first two years of four-year college programs in mathematics, physics, chemistry, and various engineering fields.
Early College High School Engineering Sciences College Course Work
The Engineering Science degree parallels the first two years of four-year college programs in various engineering fields. This is a rigorous program of study and each year our graduates with good academic standing transfer to top-tier four-year science or engineering colleges ready to complete the final two years of a bachelor's degree program. This is a transfer-oriented program with articulation agreements in place with several colleges and universities.
