CHARLTON — Gone is the way of thinking that vocational or technical students don't go on to higher education.

"That's old school," said Nancy Alpine, Pupil Personnel director at Bay Path Regional Vocational Technical High School, where a handful of students are racking up college credits before they even graduate.

Five students from the school are among just 28 students from 8 technical high schools in the state to be accepted to The Academy for College Excellence, a collaborative initiative of Northeastern University's College of Professional Studies and the Massachusetts Association of Vocational Administrators.
