NORWALK - Gov. Dannel Malloy announced Friday that starting in September, local students who want a career in technology will be able to get some of the advanced training they need from their high school.

The Norwalk Early College Academy will be a six-year program and include both high school and college-level courses. It will also be free.

The program will take place at Norwalk Community College, which is collaborating on the curriculum with the Norwalk Public School System.

Students who take part in the academy will emerge with both a high school diploma and an associate's degree in applied science.

Gov. Malloy says he's already trying to replicate the six-year science academy concept in other communities.
