YOUNGSTOWN -- Youngstown Early College kicks off its second year of classes today at Youngstown State University.

Sixty-seven Youngstown high school freshmen will join about 67 sophomores at classes in Fedor Hall.

A partnership between YSU and the Youngstown City School District, YEC is a program designed to help average students with demonstrated academic potential succeed in high school and transition to college.

YEC students take a combination of high school and college classes, graduating from high school with up to 60 hours of college credit.

The school, developed with the financial assistance of the KnowledgeWorks Foundation and the Bill & amp; Melinda Gates Foundation, opened in August 2004.

The program will add up to 100 new students annually for a total enrollment of up to 400 in grades nine through 12 by the 2007-08 school year, YSU officials said.
