BROOKLYN - Some Brooklyn high school freshmen are getting a head start on college after learning they have been accepted into the Smart Scholars Early College High School Program.

The program is a partnership between colleges and public schools.  It is offered at four schools in Brooklyn and it gives students the opportunity to graduate with up to two years of college credits.

The program is being offered at Boys & Girls High School, City Polytechnic High School, Medgar Evers College Preparatory School and Pathways in Technology Early College High School.

State officials set aside $6 million for the program, money educators say will prepare students for college.
