In order to serve the citizens of the state by promoting a higher college-going rate,
reducing the time and cost for students to obtain college credentials and expanding
opportunities for economic development, the West Virginia EDGE initiative shall meet
the following goals:
(1) Create incentives for more students to continue their education beyond high school
by providing all students with information about and access to courses that will prepare
them to meet college-level standards;
(2) Expand successful concurrent enrollment programs that include all students, not
just those who are designated as college bound. The goal here is to prepare all students for both work and postsecondary education
with the same rigorous curriculum;
(3) Align junior and senior year secondary courses with community and technical college
certificate and associate degree programs. This alignment provides access to early entrance college courses which offer all
students the opportunity to establish a college transcript while still in high school;
(4) Increase the number of students attending public community and technical colleges
by participating in a collaborative partnership between the public schools and the
state community and technical colleges; and
(5) Establish programs of study pathways in combination with early entrance college
courses which together allow a student to obtain an associate degree one year after
high school graduation or to receive an associate degree along with the high school
