Jumpstart your College Education…While You’re Still in High School

 

Aspen View Public Schools--in partnership with AB ED, post-secondary and industry--are providing Dual Credit opportunities for students.  By completing Dual Credit courses, students can get a jumpstart on their college or university education.

 

What are the benefits of Dual Credit courses?

·       Participating in a Dual Credit course allows students to earn credits in high school and post-secondary institutions at the same time, as well as earn credits that may lead to preferred placement and workplace certification.  

·       Students gain confidence to succeed academically in a post-secondary environment.  

·       Students use the latest education technologies which prepare them for the technological workforce.

·       Students learn what college and university instructors expect, while still in familiar high school surroundings.

·       Our college partners are Athabasca University, Northern Lakes College and Lakeland College.  

 

Dual Credit course information and application forms specific to each college/university can be found on the Aspen View Public Schools website (www.aspenview.org) under <Parents> <Tell me about> <Special education options> <Dual Credit>.  Or, you can access the info directly at http://newweb2.aspenview.org/Dual%20Credit.php

 

Students interested in registering for a Dual Credit course are asked to complete an application and return it to their school administrator.
