Dual Enrollment

In partnership with Muskegon Community College, we proudly offer dual enrollment opportunities for our students to earn college credit free of charge. (We do not pay transportation, parking, or activity fees.)

Participating students must have passed the PLAN, ACT, or Accuplacer test and have at least a 3.0 GPA. Students cannot enroll in more than 10 dual-credit courses and must complete a Dual-Enrollment form each semester they enroll in college classes. 

Please see your guidance counselor for additional requirements.

Educational Development Plans

Every year we help students update their educational development plans (EDP's) using Career Cruising. Students complete activities to explore career and college options and develop a clear plan.

In ninth grade, students complete an Ideas Interest Inventory and explore career options that interest them.

In tenth grade, students inventory their current skills and research avenues to boost skills that align with their career goals.

As a junior, students begin researching post-secondary options and volunteering to gain needed work experience.

As a senior, they complete a FAFSA, build their first resume, and begin applying for scholarships.
