TurboCharge with college credit logo

Turbocharge with College Credit is a K-16 partnership between the Green Bay Area Public Schools, Northeast Wisconsin Technical College and the University of Wisconsin - Green Bay with a shared transformational vision to create a college going culture. It is an intentional effort by the partners  to successfully transition high school graduates to postsecondary education by having them earn college credit towards a certificate, credential or degree upon graduation. 

What are the goals of Turbocharge?

  • Develop greater understanding between the PK-1​2​ education system and higher education so that students are positioned to be successful at a post-secondary institution (technical college, 4-year college/university or military).
  • Support all students with their Academic Career Plans so they graduate high school confident in pursuing their passions.
  • Reduce financial barriers to post-secondary education for all students. One effort will be to support all students and their families in filling out the application for federal student aid for post-secondary education. In addition, all students will be encouraged to apply for at least one college scholarship.
  • All students will apply to a post-secondary institution of higher education.
  • All students will graduate with the equivalent of 15 college ​credits earned while in high school. 

What are the benefits to students?

​Turbocharge provides students with significant benefits which include cost savings by:

  • entering post-secondary education with college credit reducing overall cost for college,
  • assisting in the attainment of financial aid, and
  • providing the rigor and coursework to ensure success at the post-secondary level.
