Dual Credit programs enable students to earn credit towards their high school diploma while getting a head start on post secondary learning. The courses are ideal for students who learn best in a hands-on environment or have already identified their future career path. Successfully completing a dual credit program allows students to graduate high school having already completed their apprenticeship or diploma program and ready to start a career and earn a living wage right after graduation.
Exploratory programs help students to study areas of passion or interest while trying out different potential career paths and making valuable industry connections. They allow students to earn high school credit outside of a typical classroom setting, and are perfect for students that thrive in non-traditional learning settings but have not yet decided what post-graduation path they would like to take.
Both programs are invaluable in helping to engage students in the learning process and help them graduate high school happy, healthy, and ready to make a positive impact on their community. They cover career paths from trades, to health and recreation, to veterinary medicine, to culinary arts, to STEM trades, just to name a few, and are life-changing for the students enrolled.
The generosity of donors like you make these programs a possibility for hundreds of students in need of a hand up every year. You can support a specific focus area, or the programs as a whole and help make a young person’s dreams a reality.
