Officials from Edison Community College and Greenville High School recently renewed four early college credit articulation agreements. According to these updated agreements, students in engineering, information technology, financial services, and supply chain management can earn college credit for their work through Greenville High School’s Career-Tech Education program.

Greenville teachers and Edison instructors work together to raise the level of high school students’ work to meet college standards and to award college credit to students who meet these standards. Greenville High School’s Career-Tech Education program, along with the new state-wide College Credit Plus program for academic subjects, provide excellent opportunities for high school students to get a jump-start on their college career.

“These articulation agreements provide a huge opportunity to the students of Greenville Career-Tech Education Center,” said Chad Beanblossom, Executive Director of the Darke County Center. “Credit earned through these articulations and College Credit Plus can amount to thousands of dollars in savings for students and their parents.”

Replacing the Post-Secondary Educational Opportunity Program (PSEOP) in fall semester of 2015, College Credit Plus offers a unique opportunity for students to enhance and further their educational and career objectives while still in high school. Students can earn college and high school credit concurrently, accelerating their college careers at no cost at Edison Community College. Credits are easily transferable to public and private universities nationwide.

Edison’s Darke County Center is located at 601 Wagner Avenue in Greenville and offers a wide variety of courses along with quality student services. For more information, call 937-548-5546. The Darke County Center is open Monday through Thursday, 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.

“Edison’s Darke County Center is currently working on program options that can be completed entirely in Darke County, many of which align seamlessly with programs offered through Greenville Career-Tech Education Center,” added Beanblossom.

Greenville High School’s Career-Tech Education program provides students with 21st Century skills to further their education and/or enter the workforce. Students of the program learn through project-based and hands-on learning, have the opportunity to earn college credits and scholarships, and are provided job shadowing and other on-the-job experiences to prepare them for a successful future.
