Dual Enrollment Opportunities Expand
FLAGSTAFF (August 6, 2018)
One of the most cost effective ways to earn college credit, is to earn that credit while still in high school. In Flagstaff, this is accomplished through a special agreement between Coconino Community College (CCC) and a student’s high school. Until now, only students in the Flagstaff Unified School District (FUSD) could take advantage of this opportunity called dual enrollment, but as of the start of this new school year that has changed.
Flagstaff Arts and Leadership Academy (FALA) and Northland Preparatory Academy (NPA) are the first charter high schools in Flagstaff to enter into their own agreement with CCC to offer dual enrollment in some specific courses they offer. Read more “Dual Enrollment Opportunities Expand”
