For the writing students, there are fewer trips to campus because there is a field trip to the Walden Institute built into the program since their studies focus on Henry David Thoreau and other American writers including Thomas Jefferson and Ralph Waldo Emerson.
HOW IT WORKS
Haverhill High students with a grade-point average of 3.0 or better are eligible.
They can take college freshman writing or engineering courses at UMass Lowell.
The students get credits at both the high school and college levels for the classes.
The credits can be transferred to any other state college or university.
