Moorhead, MN (WDAY News) - Dozens of area high school students are heading to college this fall.

MSUM is finishing up remodeling to create offices and classrooms for the Lakes Country Service Cooperative.

It's an alternative high school for about 50 students from west central Minnesota.

It's a new program, and unique because students get access to college facilities and college professors.

"We're not aware that this happens anywhere else in the country. There are some alternative programs that work with junior colleges but a 4 level university such as Moorhead State, we don't know of anywhere else in the country that's doing this so we're very excited about it," said Jeremy Kovash, Lakes Country Service Cooperative Executive Director.

The classes will be held in Bridges Hall at MSUM.

They start after Labor Day.
