What’s it like to learn at Zane State College

Jobs for the Future, a national nonprofit dedicated to bridging workforce skills gaps, chose Zane State as one of only three colleges nationwide to offer the 12th Grade Redesign program.

This program is aimed at high school students – without post-graduation plans – to graduate high school with strong, realistic higher education and career plans.

High school and college educators selected Zanesville high school students to participate. These 12th Grade Redesign students toured campus and took Zane State College courses during their final high school semester.

Completing these pre-credit courses as high school seniors enabled the students to move quickly into credit-bearing courses and into courses specific to their major.

Recently, the 12th Grade Redesign program was nationally recognized in an article published by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation titled “Success for Our Students: How High Schools and Colleges Can Share the Responsibility for the Students They Serve.”
