The Todd and Trigg County school systems are combining forces with Murray State University to offer a new dual credit program beginning in the fall.
The Thoroughbred Academy will allow Todd and Trigg students to take classes at the Murray State University Hopkinsville Extended Campus at a cost of $150 per course beginning their junior year.
Todd County Superintendent Wayne Benningfield says the partnership will allow students to get an inexpensive start on their college career.
Benningfield says students can finish 24 credit hours by the time they graduate high school.
Superintendent Benningfield thanked Murray State President Doctor Randy Dunn and Trigg Superintendent Travis Hamby for their work in forming the partnership.
