August 17 02:32 2020

Dual enrollment programs at Ironwood Ridge High School help students get a head start on their future. Through dual enrollment classes, students can start acquiring college credit while still in high school. There are multiple benefits to dual enrollment classes, a few of which include:

Smooth Transition

Students who take dual enrollment classes have an advantage when they graduate in transitioning to college or their career. Dual enrollment classes provide students the opportunity to experience college-level classes and learning environments without being overwhelmed. 

Sample Classes

Dual enrollment classes also allow kids to sample multiple classes and learn about different subjects before deciding on a major. Since there is less pressure on what classes to take in high school, students can explore topics ahead of time.

Better Transcripts

Taking dual enrollment classes is also a great way to stand out to colleges or future employers. Dual enrollment classes on transcripts show a student who is not afraid to challenge themself and work hard! If students do well in the classes it can also show that students can already perform well in advanced classes.

College Credit

Dual Enrollment classes are a great option for students who are looking to graduate college early, as they can accumulate a fair amount of college credits before they even graduate high school. Students can get ahead in their college career and save money while doing it. 

At Ironwood Ridge High School, students can take advantage of multiple dual enrollment courses in subjects like English, Math, Social Studies, Science, Modern Language, and Fine Arts. To learn more about the dual enrollment programs available in the Amphitheater School District, click here!
