FCPS Early College graduates 2024

Frederick, MD (May 28, 2024) – This month, a record 25 students graduated from the Frederick Community College Early College Program.

The students graduated at FCC’s commencement and participated in their own high school graduations – the byproduct of simultaneously earning a high school diploma and an associate degree from FCC.

This was the third class in the Early College Program and the most students to earn a diploma and an associate degree. Last year, 20 students completed the program. The first Early College class in 2021-22 had 15 students.

“Each student who completed the Early College Program should be commended for putting a significant amount of work into their studies,” FCPS Superintendent Dr. Cheryl L. Dyson said. “Their futures are bright, and they are prepared for success no matter what they choose to do next.”

The Early College Program allows students to attend FCC during their junior and senior years as full-time undergraduate students. They follow the FCC academic calendar, with options to take day, evening, online and weekend courses.
