Once again, high school students in Chinook's Edge School Division will have the opportunity to earn college credit while working on their high school curriculum.

CESD high school students are currently contemplating their courses for next year, which include options that will allow them to earn college credit.

Chinook's Edge has been partnered with Olds College since 2006 on the dual credit programming initiative. 

Barb Mulholland, Director of Learning at the Community Learning Campus, explains why dual credit programming makes such a positive impact on students.

She adds, students should check with their guidance counselor to find out more information on dual credit programming.

 

The government is set to make a province-wide movement on dual credit programming in the near future, and they used information gathered from the Chinook's Edge CLC pilot project in their research.
