NH Scholars program to increase course offerings in arts, science

The Associated Press

CONCORD (AP) — A program that encourages New Hampshire high school students to take more rigorous courses is offering new options this fall.

The NH Scholars program brings together schools and businesses to offer incentives and recognition to students who commit to completing four years of English and math, three years of laboratory science, three and a half years of social science courses and two years of a foreign language.

This year, students also will be encouraged to become NH Scholars through pathways that emphasize the arts or science, technology engineering and math. The new options will require a minimum grade point average as well as classes focused on each specific path.

The program is operated by the New Hampshire College and University Council.
