    Pathways to College & Duall Enrollment

    Pathways to College Courses While Still in High School:

    Center for Technology, Essex students often take advantage of taking college courses before they even graduate from high school. CTE has had students graduate with more than a semester's worth of completed college credits, which helps them gain admission to the colleges and universities of their choice.

    Dual Enrollment: Dual Enrollment provides all high school students with two free vouchers to take college courses on campus or online Junior and Senior year at any participating Vermont college or university. We can help students apply, fill out voucher requests, register for the course, purchase textbooks, etc.

    Fast Forward: The Fast Forward program allows eligible students enrolled in CTE programs to get credit for college courses taken at technical centers. Classes are scheduled during the regular CTE school day and taught by our teachers who are VTC or CCV adjunct professors. Each student is given two of these free vouchers in addition to their two free Dual Enrollment vouchers. We can help students apply, fill out voucher requests, and register for the fast forward course. Offerings at CTE
