Advance College Academy Informational Meeting a Success

GCPS hosted a very successful informational meeting for families last week focused on the new Advance College Academy (ACA) program being developed for Goochland High School students in partnership with J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College. The partnership is an example of similar collaborations taking place across the Commonwealth between public high schools and community colleges.

Our resulting ACA program will allow students the opportunity to earn 60 college credits and an associate of science degree concurrently with a high school diploma.

Interested families may find more information at J. Sargeant Reynold’s ACA site, the Goochland High School site, by contacting your child’s school counselor, or by contacting Ms. Raye Rector, Coordinator of Gifted and Federal Programs.

Dr. Miles McCrimmon, J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College, answers some thoughtful questions at last week’s ACA meeting.
