The programs will be taught online during their final two years in high-school and are exclusively developed by the respective college’s experienced lecturers.

Central College will be allocating a team specifically responsible in designing and providing support to the program to ensure flawless delivery. “This program provides us the opportunity to further enhance the learning experience for our students and our future generations,” DeWitt added.
