Dual Enrollment Academy

WCTC's Dual Enrollment Academy

WCTC’s Dual Enrollment Academy is designed to provide high school seniors with a head start in jobs in high-demand fields:

Students earn college credits – prior to high school graduation. The initiative awards participants with a WCTC diploma (upon successful completion) along with high school credits. Students spend the majority of their school day, both fall and spring semesters of their senior year, at WCTC participating in the DEA. Beyond gaining college credit, participation in the DEA helps high school students ease the transition from high school to post-secondary education, giving them insight into college academics. The initiative also benefits business and industry by having an immediate impact on private-sector employers looking for skilled talent. For more information, visit WCTC’s DEA Website.

Students must apply to WCTC to be enrolled.

This program is designed for students who are ready for college-level instruction with a particular interest in a career field.  This is a full-year commitment.
