FORT MYERS, Fla. - A new high school in Lee County is going to give students a head start on their college career. Edison Collegiate High School offers the chance for students to graduate with both a diploma and associates degree.
A ribbon cutting is planned for the school on the Edison College campus today. The innaugural class 100 students will hit the books August 23rd. The first two years of study will be focused on traditional high school subjects while the second two mirrors college level learning.
This new charter school is popular enough to have needed a lottery to pick the first 100 students. Each fall for the next three years a new class of 100 freshman will be added until the school is at full capacity. A similar school is going into it's second year at Edison's Charlotte County campus.
