Building Early College Pathways to STEM Careers

Joel Vargas

Most students in Bridgeport, Connecticut come from low-income families, a group that has struggled historically to complete high school and enter college. Bridgeport’s school and workforce leaders saw that students had the potential to benefit greatly from better preparation in STEM subjects through early college pathways. Bridgeport takes its first steps toward redesigning and improving the educational experiences of these students, ensuring that student experiences are connected to college-level work and real workforce needs in the region.
