What is Dual Credit?
Offering the Dual Credit Program compliments the Lethbridge School District No. 51, Board of Education Priorities: enhancing Achievement, Inclusion and Innovation. Allowing our high school students to explore and experience university and college programming through Dual Credit programming is exciting and inspiring. It creates a vision of “what can happen after high school”.
Each dual credit program presents different opportunities and experiences. “Dual Credit” allows for students enrolled in these programs to receive High School credits toward graduation, and credit in College or University programs. At a limited charge to students, courses may be offered at a high school, at the University or College, online or a combination of both.
Ultimately, this initiative seeks to increase exciting learning opportunities and choice for high school students in Lethbridge School District High Schools. Further, the “Dual Credit experience” will assist high school students in building a deeper understanding of the College or University experience.
