Armada Area Schools has formed a partnership with Ferris State University as a commitment to give students access to higher education.

Armada High School students, along with Macomb Academy of Arts and Science students, will have the opportunity to benefit from the Woodbridge Ferris Early College Program. The district announced the new partnership on Feb. 26.

The program allows students to dual enroll in general education courses and receive college credits that will transfer to various colleges and universities.

“I am very excited about partnering with Ferris State University,” Superintendent Michael Musary said in a press release. “I was very impressed with their faculty and degree programs.”

High school teachers who are participating in the program are trained and approved by FSU to ensure specific criteria mandated by university accreditation and faculty credentialing requirements are met, according to the district.

The major benefit for students with this program is the opportunity to reduce the increasing cost of college, as well as the time it takes to earn a degree.

“Our students are the real winners here,” Musary added. “The future Armada High School graduates will be leaving our district with multiple college credits.”
