Central Lakes College was recently named one of the best schools in the nation for high school students to earn college credit.

According to College Counseling Services, in a recent study, CLC was ranked among the top 50 institutions in the country offering college credit to high school students.

"This recognition speaks toward our efforts to establish partnerships with our regional high schools to offer expanded post-secondary opportunities for our region's students," Paul Preimesberger, CLC's director of secondary relations, said in a release. "CLC's successful concurrent enrollment programs have been a collaborative effort driven by the sustained effort of leadership, faculty and staff from all partnering institutions."

CLC offers college in the schools in nearly 30 high schools across the region, including: Aitkin, Belgrade-Brooten-Elrosa, Brainerd, Browerville, Crosby, Eagle Valley, Freshwater Education District, Greenway, Holdingford, Infinity Online, Isle, Little Falls, Long Prairie-Grey Eagle, Menahga, Monticello, Nevis, Northland, Onamia, Parkers Prairie, Pequot Lakes, Pierz-Healy, Pine River-Backus, Royalton, Sauk Centre, Sebeka, Staples-Motley, Swanville, Upsala and Verndale.

Jayne Glaser, a counselor at Upsala and Swanville Area Schools, said the honor was fitting for the college.

"CLC provides an excellent PSEO/CIS program for our high school junior and senior students who desire to get a jump start on their college coursework," she said. "Their professors demonstrate a high degree of professionalism in each class taught, yet go above and beyond to connect with each of our students, making them a part of the CLC community."

Other Minnesota institutions named on the list were Minnesota State University-Mankato and Northland Community and Technical College.
