Maranacook Students take college class at Thomas College!
Throughout the week of June 22-26, 2015 Maranacook High School partnered with Thomas College to provide an intensive summer course titled, "Experiencing Diversity" with Dr. Richard Biffle as the instructor, for 26 of our students in grades 10-12 (for the 2015-16 school year). All students will be receiving 3 college credits. In the class, students combine theoretical inquiry with hands on experience to examine the impact of diverse global and U.S cultures upon their communities and schools. This class was only offered to Maranacook students and did not cost the students anything. All associated costs including transportation, tuition, books, and lunch were paid for through Maranacook's GEAR Up grant and through in-kind work from Maranacook staff and Thomas College: saving each student $2300 (a cumulative of almost $60,000 for the 26 students). This is the first summer intensive course Thomas College has ever done for high school students and is part of the bigger dual enrollment partnership Maranacook and Thomas College.
In the fall of 2015, Maranacook will be offering 79 college credits through dual enrollment courses, at the high school. This is accomplished through partnerships with many colleges including: Thomas College, Kennebec Valley Community College (KVCC), University of Maine at Augusta (UMA) and St. Joesph's College of Maine. Maranacook wants all our students to earn college credit, making college more accessible and affordable for all. Maranacook is also in the process of implementing a Certificate in French pathway with UMA and MCHS French teacher, John Hirsch. All students who complete the requirements for this will be able to graduate Maranacook with approximately 20 college credits in French and with a Certificate in French from UMA, roughly equivalent to a minor concentration in French. Also in 2015-16, all students in the alternative education program at Maranacook will take KVCC's AGR101: Principles of Sustainable Agriculture, with MCHS's Alternative Education teacher, Michael Dennett. Students will earn 3 college credits by successfully completing this course.

Brittany worked diligently for over two years studying and completing the testing requirements (while also holding down three jobs!) before finally achieving this fantastic accomplishment! Brittany has decided to continue with her formal education and has enrolled in the college transitions program where she is currently taking her first college class! Brittany plans to enroll at the University of Maine in Augusta in the Fall of 2015.
