Maryland Student Gets Diploma, Degree

When Michael Igoe entered the ninth grade at West Laurel’s Chesapeake Math and IT Academy in 2013, the Laurel resident simultaneously kicked off his freshman year in college, spending half of every school day learning from Prince George’s Community College professors.

On May 25, the 18-year-old was among 10 CMIT Academy students to receive an associate degree at the Prince George’s Equestrian Center in Upper Marlboro; five days later, he earned his high school diploma.
