NEW LONDON - New London Community School District is opening doors by offering college-level classes for students during their junior and senior year of high school.

The New London High School is partnering with Danville High School to meet the required number of students needed to offer more advanced classes. Danville students will have the option to join New London classes of Spanish 4, Statistics and Physics. As for college-level classes, New London is offering two classes of Project Lead the Way, a class in Principles of Engineering, and English Composition 1 and 2. These classes will count as credit for college. Danville High School’s Precalculus class can be taken as an Advanced Placement course, where a student can take a cumulative test at the end of the course and receive college credit if they pass. Students will be responsible for driving themselves the 11 minute drive to and from the high schools for classes.

To qualify for the Precalculus and English Composition college-level classes, students must first take an exam at Southeastern Community College at either the Mt. Pleasant or West Burlington location. The test is free. Once a student completes the exam, they immediately receive their score to let them know whether or not they are ready for the college-level class.

So far, there are three students in Danville interested in taking classes in New London and three students in New London who will be enrolled in the college-level classes. Classes will be taught by teachers already on campus.
