Associate Degree in Business Administration
Our after-school program is a partnership with Essex County College. This program aims to increase the number of students who are enrolled and participating competitively in a college curriculum in order to earn college credits prior to high school graduation. By participating in the after-school program, students will graduate with their high school diploma and an associate degree.
This program develops students’ academics through a rigorous program. The 9th grade and 10th grade cohorts take three classes in the after-school program. This will put them on track as 11th graders to get in the Associate's Degree pathway. The path to college requires a roadmap—including supporting academic readiness, exposure to the idea of college and college campuses, career, financial aid counseling, and building social networks of support. West Side High School’s Credit Pathway provides a concerted effort to keep children safe, inspired and engaged in activities that support their emotional and academic development. During these three after-school classes a week, West Side High School educators will teach students in this program. This Credit Pathway program is a model and agent for systems change, integrating after-school into the school day to enhance school culture and climate along with student achievement.
