Georgian Court University professors will begin teaching graduate courses at the Central Regional High School campus, beginning in January 2014.

The high school has dedicated space for the initiative, which gives ambitious professionals a chance to take courses closer to home, Superintendent Triantafillos Parlapanides said.

"I think the program will expand each year with a variety of different courses for both graduate and undergraduate classes being offered right here at Central Regional High School," he said today. "It is a real pleasure working with such wonderful people from Georgian Court University and am looking forward to long and successful partnership.

Qualified Central Regional students have already begun earning undergraduate college credits from Georgian Court, right on the high school's Bayville campus.

"We are very excited as a district to be partnered with Georgian Court University and being able to bring academic opportunities for our students, graduates, senior community and residents."

The initial graduate programs include:

School Supervisor, Post-Master's Certification (12 credits)

This post-master's program, designed for those with at least three years of successful, full-time teaching experience, leads to eligibility for NJDOE supervisory certification, following successful completion of three traditional courses and one blended lecture/online hybrid course.

Too bad all of the kids in the GCU program hate it, complain about how boring and simple it is, and simply aren't interested.
