The announcement of a new partnership between UNE and Thornton Academy that will allow highly-motivated high school students to enter UNE with sophomore standing was the subject of a story on MPBN yesterday.
The piece details the cost-saving advantages to Thornton Academy students who complete a rigorous schedule of advanced placement courses before entering programs in UNE's College of Arts and Sciences. The students will save a full year's tuition expense.
UNE President Danielle N. Ripich is quoted, stating: “UNE is a private university with a very public mission, and this is a way of honoring that mission for, I think, both of our institutions."
Thornton Academy Headmaster Rene M. Menard and U.S. Senator Angus King are also quoted.
