The partnership enables students to take college courses that will lead to the completion of 36 to 48 college credits. High-demand, high-quality fields including computer information systems software development, cyber-defense, supply chain management, and general education will be offered. Through a structured pathway, students will take courses starting their freshman year of high school and continue in their intended major through their senior year.
Students and families who participate can save $28,000 to $36,000 in college tuition.
Tiffin City Schools will advise students in the career field of their choosing. According to TCS Superintendent Gary Barber, students need the same core of academic skills whether they enroll in a traditional two-or four-year institution, enter a post-secondary technical program or apprenticeship, go directly into the military, or enter into the workforce following graduation.
“These pathways can become life-changers for our students and families,” Barber said. “Information Technology and Cyber-Defense will be two of the most sought after professions from 2016-2026. Giving our students access to these opportunities is our obligation. Having a great partner in Tiffin University can help make this a reality. This will be amazing.”
Tiffin University’s Provost Peter Holbrook says, “Our partnership with Tiffin Columbian High School provides creative pathways for students to earn college and high school credit at the same time. It allows students an exclusive opportunity to explore career options early while earning college credit in high school. This will reduce not only the time it takes to earn a degree, but also the cost of a college education. Joining forces with Tiffin City Schools to educate our young people will allow TU yet another opportunity to build the economic development and capacity of Seneca County, Ohio.”
More information will be presented to students at a parent meeting in December.
