Dual Credit Program
The School-College-Work Initiative was created as part of the Student Success Program in Ontario and it is through this program that dual credits are offered. Dual Credit programs are courses that are offered in partnership with area colleges. Students enrolled in a dual credit are earning a credit that counts towards their high school diploma as well as a college credit.
What are the benefits?
Students are not only earning both high school and college credits but they are also getting an opportunity to gain the skills necessary to ease the transition to post secondary programs. Students who take part in this program may also have a lighter course load at college since they have already started to accumulate credits. Dual credit students have a head start on learning and training for their future careers.
