CHESTER — Sixty-eight students in the Richmond area are graduating from John Tyler Community College before they finish high school.

Nineteen of the students earned associate degrees, including 17 who are the first to graduate from the community college’s Early College Academy in Hopewell. Through the Early College Academy, students take college classes at their high school.

“Our job at Tyler is to create learning pathways for students so they can achieve their personal and professional goals,” said William Fiege, John Tyler’s vice president of learning and student success. “Offering college-level learning opportunities for high school students allows them to get ahead.

“Those earning the associate degree are halfway home to a bachelor’s degree and have already saved tens of thousands of dollars in tuition and fees. Those completing a trade program have garnered the knowledge, skills and abilities needed to get an entry-level job making a good wage directly out of high school. We are pleased to partner with our local school divisions on these efforts and plan to do even more in the future.”
