High school students travel to the college each school day for instruction in one of 13 career programs.
Students receive both high school and college credit for the courses.
Most students who enter the program as a junior will graduate from high school with at least 12 free college credit hours.
The classes, books and fees are free to the students.
Each student's home high school district pays a reduced tuition for each student enrolled.
