Hancock Public Schools offers two
wonderful opportunities for our students allowing them to earn a
college degree, or multiple degrees, at little or no cost.
The first program is the Gogebic
Community College Early College program. This program allows our
students to earn an associate's degree while still in high
school. Participating students earn 63 credits in this
three-year program, which begins in their junior year. Students
choose from two programs, one with a math-science focus or one
with English-social studies emphasis. In the junior year
students take two GCC classes each semester and three GCC
classes in the senior year.
During the 5th year of high school,
students take one on-line class through the high school and
spend the rest of the day at Gogebic. When finished with the
program students earn a two-year associates degree and have the
option to transfer to another university to continue their
The second program is the "Campus and
Community: Together for Good" tuition remission program, or more
commonly referred to as "The Hancock Award Program." This
program is a partnership between the Hancock Public Schools and
Finlandia University. The idea of this program is simple.
Students graduating from Hancock High School earn a year of
college tuition remission for each year they attend Hancock High
(1:1 exchange) for up to four years.
