Sussex Technical High School held an open house May 5 for students and parents interested in learning more about Widener University courses and the Early Career and College Partnership. Sussex Tech’s ECCP provides Sussex Tech students with the opportunity to complete Widener University classes as dual-enrollment courses, earning both college and high school credit. Through the district’s collaborative agreement with Widener University, Sussex Tech students have the opportunity to earn up to 30 college credits.
High school staff, including instructors, guidance department personnel, and school and district administrators, were available at the open house to talk with parents and students. Attendees were able to view course syllabi and textbooks and to register on the spot for Widener courses.
Preceding the open house, Damien Burke, a nationally recognized college and career readiness consultant with Stand By Me, was the featured speaker at a Navigating the Path to College event. Students and families gained a better understanding for how students can navigate the path to college, improve college readiness, and learn strategies to increase student options for the future.
