Hello! This school year is off to a wonderful start, it has been great to come back and see all of my students! Schedule changes are finally done. Over the next couple of months I will be working on senior audits, and making sure that every senior has what they need to graduate. Senior parents will receive a mailing home verifying what their child needs for graduation. We will also be working on signing up every senior for the SAT and/or ACT. Every student gets two fee waivers which they can get from me or Mrs. Mahon. We require that every senior takes the SAT at least once... it's free, why not!?!? If a student would like to sign up at home they simply go to www.collegeboard.org. This website allows students to sign up for the SAT, study for the SAT, and research colleges and careers. We will also be working on having seniors apply to college, they can see me or Mrs. Mahon. If students need letters of recommendation they should be sure to ask their teacher or guidance counselor EARLY! I have forms for letters of recommendation in my office. I will also be going into classrooms to introduce myself to any students that I do not know and to do some developmental guidance lessons. I will also be calling down students to meet with them individually. I will be holding a community service club that meets on Mondays after school, students can come and earn their 60 required hours of community service!! I am looking forward to a fun and exciting school year. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me. Below are our college credit options that we offer at the Science and Technology Magnet High School.
COLLEGE CREDIT OPTION
Jumpstart Your Future Career!
Dual enrollment programs are classes taken in high school that count as college credits.
Research shows participation in these programs leads to a greater likelihood of
completing a college degree. A student who successfully completes 12 or more college
credits in high school has completed the equivalent of one full college semester. This
gives the students a huge head start, and also saves them thousands of dollars.
Here at Science and Technology Magnet High School of Southeastern Connecticut
(STMHS) and New London High School (NLHS) there are several academic options that
provide students with the opportunity to audit college courses and/or receive college credits:
College Career Pathways (Three Rivers Community College)
Connecticut College (New London Scholar Program)
ECE English (University of Connecticut)
Coast Guard Academy
Advanced Placement (AP) Courses
Project Lead the Way
Enrollment in College Credit Options is limited by the following criteria:
Ability to fit into student's academic schedule
Prior academic performance
Programs listed with an asterisk are open to students enrolled in STMHS or NLHS. For
