All students are strongly encouraged to pursue continuing education and prepare for a meaningful and productive career. They can get a leg up on college by enrolling in Dual Enrollment courses while in high school. Reduced repetition of course content, and monetary and time savings are some of the advantages of enrollment in vocational Dual Enrollment programs. A.S. Degree or Technical Certificate programs such as patient care technician, drafting and design, child care provider, youth apprenticeships and criminal justice are offered.
