Benicia High School is going green this fall according to the Vallejo-Times Herald. The school is getting ready to launch a new green career academy called ECH20, pronounced Echo. It stands for energy, carbon and water.

Students in the ECH20 program will take extra classes in environmental education in addition to their regular class load. They will take three specific classes during their three years in the program: biology, environmental studies and a senior seminar in which they will complete a science project and intern at a local business.

The high school is working with Solano Community College on a certificate program that will help students get a job in a variety of fields after graduation.
