As part of the district’s commitment to providing students with a variety of opportunities to enhance their learning during the summer break, the high school is hosting two classes for students to earn a total of six college credits through SUNY Farmingdale.

The courses — Genocide and Renaissance — are open to Science, Mathematics and Research for Transformation Scholar students and dual-enrollment students. The classes each meet for three hours, Mondays through Thursdays, throughout the month of July.

This SMART Scholar and dual-enrollment program has increased the number of college credit-bearing courses at the high school to 51 total credits, which include courses and electives in social studies, in addition to electives in technology and business.

Freeport’s partnership with SUNY Farmingdale and the incentive of earning college credits provide students with the unique opportunities to further build the foundation of their futures during their summer breaks.
