Livingston County Early College
The Early College program allows students to add one year to a traditional four-year high school education. While in their senior year of high school (grade 12), students begin taking several college courses and adjusting to college deadlines and calendars. They begin to advocate for themselves and transition into a college student. In year 13, their schedule becomes full with college courses, internships, and learning and career opportunities.
Students postpone receiving their high school diploma until they complete their 13th year of high school in exchange for receiving the necessary supports as they transition to becoming a college student, free college tuition, and books, a $20,000 value for some. Students’ local school district supports the cost of tuition and books; Brighton Area Schools, Fowlerville Community Schools, Hartland Consolidated Schools, Howell Public Schools, and Pinckney Community Schools.
This certificate program prepares students for employment as a certified automotive technician. The program prepares the student for the State of Michigan Mechanic Certification tests as well as the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) certification exams.
