There are over 240 students in our program from Cloudland, Unaka, Hampton, Happy Valley, Elizabethton, Johnson County, Unicoi County, Washington County, and Sullivan County High Schools. Students must meet at least one of the following criteria in order to be accepted into the program: 1) family income meets federal guidelines, and/or 2) neither parent obtained a degree from a four-year college. Students start the three/four-year program in the beginning of their freshman or sophomore year and remain in the program until they begin their college career.
