The Case for Dual Enrollment--A Model for College Access
Morris, Roger N.
In Patrick County Public Schools in Patrick County, Virginia, in 2007, one of the goals that developed for the school district was to increase the opportunities for students to enroll in dual enrollment programs. The dual enrollment model is not new to Virginia's secondary educational program. This model has been available to Virginia students since 1988 (Catron, 1998). Dual enrollment/dual credit programs enable secondary students to take college classes while enrolled in high school. The program described takes the dual enrollment opportunities to another level by enabling high school seniors to earn a college associate's degree and a high school diploma simultaneously.
