Commonwealth Collegiate Academy

UMass Dartmouth maintains agreements with partner High Schools to provide an Early College programing model. The pilot program of the University of Massachusetts will be offered in a mixed modality, with all lectures provided by current University faculty via “live” synchronous remote instruction, and academic support provided by high school instructors. The pilot will focus on students in grades 11 and 12, who will take two classes each semester of the 2022-23 school year. The objective of the CCA is to allow XPS juniors and seniors to acquire at least thirty (30) transferable credits during two academic years and at least one summer session in general education courses or courses connected to college majors that lead to a variety of professional career pathways.
