MOREHEAD More than 60 high schools and technical schools are offering Morehead State University Eagle Scholars classes this fall semester with nearly 3,000high school students participating in the program.
“The Eagle Scholars program allows students to take challenging college courses during high school. The classes are the same classes that are offered on the Morehead campus. They are taught by local teachers who meet the high academic standards that are required of Morehead State faculty. These courses are challenging and allow students to be exposed to the academic rigor that comes with a college course,” said Joel Pace, program director. Qualifying students are given the opportunity to prepare for the future while attending high school. In the program, students may enroll in a course taught in their high school and receive college credit for successful completion. The program allows qualified high school faculty, who meet accreditation standards, to teach the University courses.
