Englewood Area Community Foundation Gives Dwight Morrow High School Students Opportunity to Earn College Credit

The Englewood Area Community Foundation awarded the Englewood Public School District a $1,600 grant to fund student tuition for Fairleigh Dickinson University’s Middle College Program. With the grant, eight Englewood high school students – selected from both Dwight Morrow High School and Academies@Englewood – were able to enroll in an Advanced Placement United States history course during the 2007-08 school year and became eligible to earn college credit.

In September of 2007, FDU and the Englewood Public School District collaborated to bring the Middle College Program to Dwight Morrow High School/Academies@Englewood. The program, affiliated with over 60 high schools throughout New Jersey, allows AP juniors and seniors to experience college-level instruction while still in high school. Students attend classes on their own campus, but are given the opportunity to visit lectures at other universities and receive supplemental lessons taught by Farleigh’s faculty. The selected course in Englewood, “AP United States History” was taught by Ms. Lynette Adrian Bickham, an Englewood school district staff teacher.
