Westley Davis Academy Dual Credit Program for High School and Home School Students

Dual Credit enables a high school student to earn credit that applies to high school graduation and also earn college credits that will transfer to a University or an Associate Degree.

Dual Credit courses are generally offered by colleges or Universities therefore making it approved and regulated by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board.  Dual Credit classes are college level classes, taught by college faculty, using the same curricula, materials, and standards as classes taught on a regular college campus.

A student can attend college classes on campus or a nearby high school.   Many of these classes are offered online via Internet access.

There are many benefits of participating in dual credit:  It allows a student to get the feel of taking college classes in high school to ensure an easier transition to college.  It also allows a student to take core college classes.  The students become proficient in following a syllabus, meeting classroom and understanding course requirements.  The students become proficient in utilizing research techniques and citing works used to avoid plagiarism.  This also allows students to enhance critical thinking and studying skills.  This also helps alleviates college costs for the students down the road once the student has graduated high school.
