  • McCown Announces New Dual College Enrollment Partnership with St. Francis College

    Gaynor McCown Expeditionary Learning School announces a new partnership with St. Francis College beginning in spring 2021!  The High School Bridge Plus Program is designed for High School students who are interested in receiving college credits and the necessary preparation and guidance to succeed in college at an affordable cost.

    In this innovative model, students take SFC coursework at their own high school, taught by McCown high school teachers. There are a broad range of benefits for students who take High School Bridge Plus credits. For example, students gain credit that transfers to most colleges while receiving official SFC transcripts. Additionally, the “Plus” component of our program focuses on assisting students to build college readiness skills and gain the support necessary for success through customized programming, workshops and info sessions which are tailored to the needs of our participating students.

    More information to come in Februrary 2021!
