The school year begins this week for Brunswick County Early College students. They head back to school Thursday, Aug. 6.
This is the first year the school will operate with students in grades 9-12. Since opening with only a freshman class and about 80 students in 2006, principal Vicky Snyder said beginning the school year with 286 students in all four grades has been a journey.
“What it means to me is that we have really come a long way,” she said. “It was a dream, and now it has become a reality.”
