BHS, Trine deal set up

    Officials from Trine University Middle College have announced a partnership with North Adams Community Schools that will expand the college's concurrent enrollment program and will allow BHS students to take pre-calculus (MA 123) classes for college credit at Trine.
    Bellmont pre-calculus teachers Michael Macke and Kent Arnold will serve as Trine adjunct professors, according to an announcement from the Angola school.
    Bellmont High School Principal Scot Croner said the cost of the course, through which BHS students will earn three trigonometry college credits, is $300.
    “Trine University is proud to be a part of the school’s plan to offer challenging, college-level learning opportunities to high school students,” Kelly Stout, director of Trine University Middle College, said in a press release. “We are excited to move the academic experience of Trine University into even more areas of the northeast Indiana region.”
    Trine currently has partnerships with Hamilton, Westview, Fremont and Lakewood Park Christian schools.
    Trine University Middle College and its concurrent enrollment high schools adhere to standards established by the National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships. Courses satisfy requirements for the state’s Core 40 with Academic Honors Diploma for high school graduates.
