Upper Shore Early College Initiative

An Early Start for Future Success!

The Upper Shore Early College Initiative is for Caroline County Public Schools students who are interested in biomedical technology, radiologic technology, or other allied health fields. This program will allow students to save time and money while they work toward a college degree while still in high school. The Upper Shore Early College Initiative is supported by a Maryland State Department of Education grant.

Current sophomores at Colonel Richardson and North Caroline high schools in health occupation fields are eligible to apply to take Dual Enrollment college courses through the Early College Initiative beginning in Fall 2014 when they are juniors. Accepted students may earn 30 college credits or more during the final two years of high school through this joint program offered by Chesapeake College and Caroline County Public Schools.

The Roberta Holt Dual Enrollment Grant, administered by the Mid-Shore Community Foundation, can help eligible students pay for tuition, fees and books in the Early College Initiative. Grant funds are subject to availability and only those students who meet the Holt Grant application deadlines are considered for awards.
