College Courses for High School Students Who Learn Differently
Dual Enrollment allows for an eligible high school student to participate in postsecondary coursework creditable toward their diploma requirements and an associate or baccalaureate degree. They can earn college credit in general education courses while still in high school.
Taking college courses while still in high school can reduce the time needed to complete the requirements of a high school diploma and a college degree, broaden the scope of curricular options available to students, and increase the rigor and variety of course offerings available.
Beacon College’s Dual Enrollment course offerings are uniquely designed to support students’ college readiness through focused academic programming, executive functioning skill development, and progressive exposure to a college-level academic workload.
