Durham Tech alternative school recognized nationally

April 19, 2017

Gateway to College alternative school at Durham Technical Community College has been recognized for its success helping students earn high school diplomas.

The national Gateway to College National Network recognizes affiliate programs that exceed such national benchmarks.

Gateway to College at Durham Tech is one of three Made in Durham partner alternative schools piloting innovations for helping formerly disconnected students graduate from high school, earn a post-secondary credential and enter a career by age 25.

“Gateway programs across the country play an important part in a national effort to increase the number of young people who complete high school and postsecondary training,” Network President Emily Froimson said in a letter to Durham Tech President William Ingram.

“I am writing to thank you, your staff and your students for the work of your Gateway to College program over the past year and for your continued support for off-track and out-of-school youth in your community,” Froimson said.
