Earning College Credit

All New Roots students will graduate with college credits from Tompkins Cortland Community College (TC3), granted for concurrent enrollment courses taken in the junior and senior years.

Concurrent enrollment classes are classes which grant both high school and college credit, without the cost of college tuition. Several junior and senior year classes will use syllabi approved by TC3's CollegeNow program. Students will also be able to take additional online and regular TC3 offerings related to areas of specialization and interest. As a recent report from the American Youth Policy Forum demonstrates, students who graduate from high school with college credits are more likely to apply to college, and to show greater persistence in college beyond the first year.
