Next year, HVRHS will be participating in the University of Connecticut’s Early College Experience Program.  The ECE is a concurrent enrollment program that allows motivated high school students to take UCONN courses at their high schools for both high school and college credit.  Two courses, AP Calculus AB and US History 11H, will be part of this dual enrollment program.
Students have the option of taking these courses for just high school credit, or both UCONN and high school credit.  Students who elect to receive 3 credits for Calculus must pay a fee of $90; students who take US History for 6 credits (they will receive credit for two UCONN courses) must pay a fee of $180.00.
If you are interested in this program, you must fill out a registration form (available from Mrs. Prince in the Counseling Office) and return it by the last day of exams.  An invoice for the course fee will be mailed to the student by the University of Connecticut at the end of August.
If you have any questions, please call me at 860-824-5123 X173 or email me at kprince@hvrhs.org.
