From the Georgia Department of Education:
"Dual Enrollment is designed to prepare students for college and career opportunities, leading students to postsecondary institutions for an industry recognized certification or licensure, an associate and/or higher college degree, and successful employment. Georgia has created a singular program known as Dual Enrollment for students in grades 10-12 who qualify to participate. Students may enroll on a part-time or full-time basis as a Dual Enrollment student and take college courses at their high school or on a postsecondary campus. Students will receive high school and college credit simultaneously when attending and passing approved college classes."
Currently, the state supports two dual enrollment options:
- Dual Enrollment
- Accelerated Career Diploma (formerly known as Option B).
For more information about participating in dual enrollment or the Accelerated Career Diploma option, please contact your student’s assigned school counselor.
Dual enrollment opportunities are available through the Athens Community Career Academy for students that meet admission requirements. For more information on ACCA programs and eligibility, please visit www.clarke.k12.ga.us/acca.
