The State Scholars program, which aims to prepare students for college and the workforce by encouraging them to take a more rigorous courseload, has selected Assabet Valley Regional Technical High School as one of five participating schools.
Students in the program must take four years of English, three and a half years of social studies, three years each of science and math, and two years of a foreign language, said Linda Noonan, managing director of the Massachusetts Business Alliance for Education, which is helping to administer the program.
Students who complete the program will have a chance at scholarship opportunities and other possible incentives, Noonan said.
