Wouldn't it be nice to save money and get a head start on your college education? Talk about a weight off your shoulders. Believe it or not, it's easier than you think.

earlycollegeThanks to the passage of the Flexible Pathways Bill this past December, Vermont's Early College Program (ECP) is expanding. What does this mean for you?

If you are currently a Vermont high school student in your junior year, you may now be able to earn your high school diploma while simultaneously earning college credit at one of six approved colleges in Vermont. And, Burlington College is proud to call itself one of them! In fact, it is currently the only private college participating in the program and eager to welcome high school students like you.

With the expansion of Vermont's Early College Program, prospective students can now get a taste of the college experience and earn some real college credit before even spending a penny.

This program creates more room for opportunity and exploration, at no cost to you in your first year, and with big savings afterwards. Maybe you'd like to get a few of those general education requirements under your belt? Or maybe you're just eager to start thinking about different majors?

I want to learn more and apply for the Early College Program.
