Dual Credit

Some post-secondary institutions and high schools have joined together to help high school students get a head start on university or college. These programs, known as "dual credit," allow high school students to take courses toward both their senior years of high school and a university or college credential. We encourage high school students and guidance counsellors to stay informed on these opportunities to enable academic achievement. Explore the following categories for more information.
