Ticonderoga The Ticonderoga High School Spanish program is celebrating its seventh year collaboration with SUNY-Albany.
The program, called SUNY at the High School, allows juniors and seniors to take college level Spanish courses while still enrolled at high school. Most area colleges require a year of foreign language as part of the undergraduate degree program. The students receive high school and college credit at the same time, while realizing tuition savings by completing the courses while still in high school.
“The best part of this program, other than the substantial cost savings for parents, is that the students receive college credit for successfully completing the course,” said instructor Lynne Lenhart.
The credits are not dependent upon taking a specific test, but rather awarded upon completion of the year long course.
Students have the opportunity to enroll in the course as juniors and again as seniors, offering a total of eight college credits at high school graduation. The eight SUNY Albany credits can then be transferred to the college of the student’s choosing upon graduation from Ticonderoga High school.
