  •  A new educational opportunity awaits Honesdale High School seniors next year.
    Through the Dual Enrollment Program, seniors will be offered the option of taking reduced-cost, college-level night courses while still in high school.
    At their January 19 meeting, the Wayne Highlands School Board approved the signing of agreements between the district and the following institutions of  higher learning: Luzerne County Community College, Marywood University, and Penn State University- Worthington Scranton Campus.
    “With a grant that we’re applying for at the state level, we’re looking not only to offer to students a half-price tuition rate for the courses they’re taking (through the Dual Enrollment Program), but also further reimbursement through successful awarding of the (Dual Enrollment Program) grant,” said Honesdale High School Principal Greg Frigoletto.
    “What’s interesting is, the kids are actually taking college-level courses that are going to be offered at the different locations in the evenings, whereby they’re hopefully going to get a head start on gathering credits for a degree. And for the ambitious student ...it’s an amazing opportunity,” Frigoletto added.
    For more details on the Dual Enrollment Program, contact Principal Frigoletto at 253-2046.
    Frigoletto said they plan to hold an informational session on the program for parents and students in the Spring.
