Dual Enrollment

Are you a high school junior or senior interested in getting a head start on your college education?

Are you a school administrator looking to enhance your school’s or district’s post-secondary offerings?

Dual enrollment is an acceleration program that allows pre-collegiate students to take postsecondary coursework and simultaneously earn credit toward a high school diploma, a career certificate, and/or a college degree. 

Dual enrollment can have a positive impact on high school academics, high school graduation rate, college enrollment, college success, and college completion rate. It can also help reduce time to degree, meaning how long it takes students to complete their college degree, saving them time and money. Dual enrollment is expanding nationwide and offered in many high schools in the United States. “Approximately 88% of high schools offer dual enrollment, and 34% of U.S. students take college courses in high school” (US DOE).

Despite my busy schedule with sports and clubs, I have been able to fit in Gratz courses for five years. The Jewish education I have received has strengthened my ability to think critically in my Dual Enrollment classes which count for college credit.
