LITTLE CHUTE - It's a moment Noah VanVooren's parents never thought would happen.

Their son, a senior at Little Chute High School senior who has Down Syndrome, received an acceptance letter to college.

VanVooren will start classes at Edgewood College in Madison this fall, part of their Cutting Edge program. According to the school's website, the program offers an "individualized approach to education and inclusion in college for students with intellectual developmental disabilities."

VanVooren's mother, Kara, told FOX 11's Kelly Schlicht she's excited for her son's new opportunities.

You may remember VanVooren from last fall.

The Little Chute football team water boy came in for the last play of the last home game to score a touchdown.
