The UConn ECE program allowed me to take challenging and intriguing courses while in high school as well as equipped me with the courses necessary to fulfill all of the requirements for my major and minor after only three years at UConn.

I have been part of the UConn ECE program since 2001. It is hard to overstate the positive impact of the UConn ECE program on our students. The courses offered in the UConn ECE program stimulate the intellectual development of young minds in a way that standard high school curriculum cannot. Many students have found their path forward through the varied UConn ECE courses they have taken. The UConn ECE program leverages taxpayer dollars invested in the university by providing excellent academic opportunities for Connecticut high school students.

UConn ECE has helped my school by providing my fellow peers with a way to experience a true college-level course and possibility to earn credits for a very generous price before even entering college. Personally, my French V UConn ECE course gave me the confidence and ability to have conversations with French citizens when I went on a school field trip to France last spring.

Taking ECE courses in high school prepared me for the rigorous and intensive courses I would be taking during my time at UConn. By taking both ECE Economics and ECE Statistics at my high school, I was able to come to UConn with two major classes already completed. Now a graduating senior, I could not imagine my UConn experience without the preparation from my ECE classes.

Offering UConn ECE courses has allowed our school community to develop an incredibly positive and valuable relationship with the university. Additionally, our students have an opportunity to participate in college level courses during high school that will prepare them for greater success when they enter the next phase of their educational careers.

The program is amazing. At our school alone, I have seen enrollment almost double over the past two years. The students love the work they are doing and are gratified being able to earn college credit. I can only imagine as to in another two years, how immense UConn ECE will become.
