College Credit

Students may earn college credit for select courses taken at Norwich Free Academy through our concurrent or dual enrollment partnerships with the University of Connecticut, Eastern Connecticut State University and Three Rivers Community College. Instructors are Academy teachers certified as adjunct professors by the colleges.

The Early College Experience program at UConn and the Dual Enrollment Program at ECSU provide academically motivated students opportunities to take university courses while still in high school. In these courses, students experience challenging college work, build their college readiness confidence and earn college credit, providing both an academic and financial head start on a college degree. These courses foster independent learning, creativity and critical thinking - all pivotal for success in college.
