The mission of the Hazen Union School Guidance Department is to support the academic, career, and personal/ social development of all students. Through individual and group counseling and collaboration with school, home, and community, we foster responsible decision-making. We strive to help students realize their full academic and personal potential as lifelong learners and global citizens.
Through ACT 77 Vermont has provided qualified high school seniors the opportunity to begin college a year early while still completing necessary courses for their high school graduation. This is called early college. For many Hazen Union students this has meant attending Vermont Technical College, Johnson State, Lyndon State and CCV.
Parents and students please be advised that this is unique opportunity that requires students who have demonstrated strong maturity as well as effective academic and social skills while at Hazen. Students will be receiving both a high school and college transcript and their studies should be taken seriously. Please contact each school to obtain more information or schedule an appointment with Chris Miller to review options.
VTC's program is called VAST - Vermont Academy of Science and Technology.
In this program you apply and move to campus in either Randolph or Williston. The deadline is May. Please follow the link for more information:
