Dual Enrollment Program

CCCS DUAL ENROLLMENT PROGRAM

Calvary Chapel Christian School is now offering Dual Enrollment courses for our 10th-12th grade students. By enrolling in these courses, the students will be able to earn college credit and high school credit at the same time. In addition to preparing them for college success, this opportunity can save them thousands of dollars in college tuition.

The Christian Universities we have partnered with share our vision of giving the best opportunity for our students to develop a strong intellectual and moral character, and a Biblical perspective on the total world view. We desire our students to be Christlike influences in the world doing everything is such a way that pleases Him.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is Dual Enrollment?

Dual Enrollment courses allow qualified high school students to enroll in college level classes that earn both high school and college credit at the same time.

What are the qualifications to be enrolled in Dual Enrollment courses?

  • Be in the 10th-12th grade
  • Meet 3.2 GPA
  • Meet with guidance counselor
  • Earn qualifying score on Math or English placement test, if required
  • Earn qualifying score on SAT’s (only applies to UNWSP)

Please refer to the specific university and inquire with the CCCS Dual Enrollment Coordinator.

When do students complete coursework?

On-line courses:

Students will work on their On-line Dual Enrollment courses during an assigned period in the school day. The online classes are led by the university instructor and a CCCS teacher provides support and guidance. If coursework is not completed during the school day, it is the student’s responsibility to complete their work at home and submit their assignments when it is due. It is important for students enrolled in On-line Dual Enrollment courses to be diligent and maintain good study habits as their grade will remain on their permanent college transcripts.

On-site courses

We also offer a limited selection of CCCS taught dual enrollment courses. These courses are taught by CCCS faculty using our school’s curriculum. Students in CCCS taught dual enrollment courses will be given college level coursework that is to be completed when instructed in class or at home as homework.

Are Dual Enrollment courses transferable?

The universities we have partnered with are regionally accredited; therefore most universities that accept transfer credits should accept the dual credits. Some courses may not be accepted within the student’s area of study. It is the student’s responsibility to contact the appropriate college or university to see if the Dual Enrollment course(s) will be accepted.

How many Dual Enrollment courses can students take?

Students are limited to taking two dual enrollment courses a semester unless approved by the CCCS Administration.

What is the difference between Dual Enrollment courses and Advanced Placement courses?

AP courses require students to pass the AP exam at the end of the school year in order to receive college credit. Dual Enrollment courses grant credit based on the completion of the course with a passing grade of “C” or better. The grades students receive in Dual Enrollment courses are permanent and will appear on both high school and college transcripts.

Why take dual enrollment courses?

If you have a true interest in a subject area and are willing to work hard, consider taking dual enrollment courses. You will gain exposure to the rigorous course work expectations in college.

You will be able to:

  • transition easier between high school and college
  • Demonstrate to colleges and universities an ability to succeed in rigorous academics
  • Boost your GPA
  • Gain an edge: College admissions officers look favorably on students who take challenging courses
  • Challenge yourself in more demanding classes

  • Study subjects in greater depth and detail
  • Take classes with others who want to achieve and learn
  • earn credit for college and high school simultaneously
  • save  money on tuition expenses
  • get a head start on college

Grand Canyon

Vision
Grand Canyon University is a premier Christian university educating people to lead and serve.

Mission
Grand Canyon University prepares learners to become global citizens, critical thinkers, effective communicators and responsible leaders by providing an academically challenging, values-based curriculum from the context of our Christian heritage.

The curriculum at GCU is designed to prepare students with the skills and knowledge needed in the contemporary job market. Students are challenged to develop these tools and to push their intellectual limits in order to become successful in their careers.

In addition, the curriculum fosters personal discovery so that students realize within themselves the elements of compassion and accountability. A uniquely important element of the GCU mission statement is the defining attribute of its Christian heritage. The GCU community defines its culture by the way its members reflect a committed relationship with Christ and creates the GCU experience in a manner that reflects His teachings to support students and graduates through a successful life journey.

These normative Christian values are integral to the development, maturity, and education of ethical and morally respectable citizens who continue on the path of life-long learning. Each element or objective of the GCU mission statement is uniquely addressed in the GCU curriculum and by the GCU culture, which shapes a rich learning environment from which students graduate with professional and life skills.

When learners graduate from GCU, our expectation is that they will be global citizens, critical thinkers, effective communicators, and responsible leaders.
