Jackson Center High School Offers 12 Dual Enrollment Options & 2 AP Courses
Dual enrollment has had such a positive impact on my
education. I was able to transfer 21 credit hours,
all taken in high school, to college. This has
helped cut down on costs and time. I am very
thankful that Jackson Center offered dual enrollment,
and would hope that this kind of program is continued
for other students at Jackson Center.

Taking dual enrollment classes in high school was a huge
relief for me when I got to college; I entered as a
sophomore. All of the rest of my friends are
completely bogged down with the max amount of classes,
most of which ones I have already credit for.
Taking the basics in high school definitely helped me
put me ahead of the rest and allowed me extra study time
to focus more on the classes I need to do extremely well
in for my major.

Dual enrollment helped out tremendously with
furthering my education before I even made it to
college! With the dual enrollment credits that I
earned while still in high school, I am a semester
ahead of all the other freshmen at Wilmington
College. This means that I am already
guaranteed to graduate in 3 1/2 years, and if I work
hard, hopefully I can make the 3 1/2 years turn into
3 years. College is not cheap, so getting
ahead while you're still in high school is a very
smart decision and will save you lots of money!
Take dual enrollment classes, you won't regret it!

Having the availability of dual enrollment in high
school was very special to me. I was able to complete
and transfer 32 credit hours that Urbana State
University offered to Bowling Green State University.
Granted, some of the credits did not have an effect on
my major, but they still counted as completed hours. I
entered my first year of college as a sophomore and
after my first year I will be considered a junior. With
this being said, dual enrollment has saved me several
thousand dollars and countless hours. I encourage all
students to take as many dual enrollment courses as
possible and hope this program continues for future
