A second cohort of juniors will begin the Rising Phoenix program in fall 2021 after the program completed its inaugural year in 2020 of collaboration between the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay and Manitowoc Lincoln High School.
Rising Phoenix is an early college high school program, providing students dual enrollment in high school and the university, ongoing student success coaching and the opportunity to earn a high school diploma and their associate of arts and sciences degree upon graduation from high school, jumpstarting their college or vocational careers.
“We are so excited to continue our partnership with UW-Green Bay by providing another 25 students with this tremendous opportunity,” said Lee Thennes, Manitowoc Lincoln principal, in a news release. “We also want to celebrate the success of our current Rising Phoenix students who just completed their first semester. The support they get from their student success coach and our team of school counselors is amazing.”
