Two ÍæÅ¼½ã½ãHigh School seniors are set to begin their undergraduate studies at Suffolk County Community College in January while simultaneously finishing their senior year of high school.
Felipe Maldonado and Jack Porter are the first ÍæÅ¼½ã½ãHigh School students to be accepted into SCCC’s Early College Program, through which they will each be taking an evening class at the college’s Ammerman Campus.
Maldonado, who plans to study architecture in college, will be taking Drawing I. He intends to continue his education at Suffolk in the fall and eventually enroll in a four-year institution.
Porter will be taking a biology course at Suffolk with a goal to study data science at Stony Brook University in the fall. Both students said they are excited about the opportunity to get a head start and begin their college careers as they complete their senior year of high school.
