College High School Grants
The Department of College-High School Programs is currently involved with the following grant activities:
The Proposed Early College High School in Freeport will target students who are members of groups that have been historically under-represented in Higher Education to receive college credits towards a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Programming and Information Systems at Farmingdale State College. It is expected that students who participate in this opportunity will earn at least 35 college credits, and as many as 44 college credits, before graduating from high school. The goal of the Computer Programming and Information Systems program, at Farmingdale State College, is to provide our students with the highest level of education and prepare them to meet future challenges as they join the ever growing world of IT professionals.
