There is a little known program available to high school juniors and seniors that can help them get a leg up on post high school education. It's called "Expanded Options", and it's offered through Central Oregon Community College. Seana Barry, Assistant Director of Admissions and Records says the Expanded Options Program can help some students who find they function better in a college setting: "The high school counselor meets with the student to see which classes they can take because there are certain rules around what classes they can take through these expanded options program. The high school can't offer the same class as the student wants to take at COCC." Barry says they do get college credit, and the program is free for students. The school district is billed for each student attending a college class, according to a bill passed by the State Legislature several years ago. For more information, Barry suggests high school students talk with their counselor.
