Leaders from Clemson, Tri-County and the Upstate South Carolina
school districts announced the newest partnership at an August 10 event
on the Tri-County campus in Pendleton.
The Expressway collaboration allows high school students to take
dual credit courses as early as the 10th grade before entering technical
college to complete the first half of an education program. They enter
Clemson as juniors alongside other education majors, potentially earning
a bachelor’s degree in three years. This accelerated pathway identifies,
supports and prepares students for a career as an educator.

A third iteration of Expressway to Tiger Town is in the works with
Trident Technical College in Charleston and Lowcountry South Carolina
school districts. The College of Education is also active in the Midlands.
In the rural areas of the state, many of which are struggling economically,
innovative solutions in education and approaches to curriculum can
make the difference for students and the communities in which they
live. College leaders have met with superintendents to introduce our
Expressway concept in these parts of the state.
