Students at four Hawaiʻi Island high schools can now take college courses on their campus through the Early College High School Program. The Hawai’i P-20 Partnerships for Education recently approved Kohala High School’s entry into the program that develops best practices for early college high schools so that more students graduate with college credits while becoming more college and career-ready. This initiative compliments the existing running start program that enables high school students to earn high school and college credits simultaneously.

Kohala High School will begin offering early college courses when the 2015 spring semester begins with a class in Sociology 100 provided by UH Hilo’s North Hawai’i Education and Research Center. A total of three classes may be offered in the fall to give students choices across the curriculum.

To find out more about credit or non-credit opportunities in North Hawai’i, contact NHERC at 775-8890. For more news about the University, visit hilo.hawaii.edu. That’s the UH Hilo Report. I’m Ken Hupp.
