A high school in a college will be located at the Original Mount Vernon High School as a partnership between Northern Virginia Community College (NVCC) and Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS). Dr. Annette Haggray, provost of the Alexandria Campus of NVCC, discussed the plans at the Aug. 9 business breakfast hosted by Mount Vernon-Lee Chamber of Commerce. High school students would be able to earn both a high school degree and a two-year associate’s degree, or up to two years’ credit toward a bachelor’s degree. Karen Corbett Sanders, chair of FCPS, noted that it will still take several years before this high school is opened as the planning is still in the beginning stages.
