More than 100 students in the Danbury Early College Opportunity program at Danbury High School met with corporate mentors for the final time this school year on Friday. During the two-hour event, students and their mentors from Pitney Bowes and NewOak worked in groups sharing their final products while focusing on presentations skills.
Students have worked with mentors since February to find solutions to environmental problems that can be addressed using technology.
The DECO degree program is offered by Naugatuck Valley Community College at the high school as part of the program’s curriculum. Students will begin accelerating their high school requirements so that by sophomore or junior year they can begin incorporating college-level courses. They can expect to complete the Associate Degree in four, five or six years.
