What is Dual Enrollment?
Dual enrollment is a unique opportunity for high school students to take college classes while earning their high school diplomas. Students are enrolled in both their high schools and a nearby community college or other postsecondary institution, where they can take college courses.
Dual enrollment can be academic classes such as English 101, Calculus, etc. Through a state STEM grant, students can take science, technology, engineering, and math courses free of all cost. Dual enrollment can also be trade industry classes such as welding, industrial electronics, etc. these classes are paid for by a federal grant.
Covington County Schools is in a partnership with Lurleen B. Wallace Jr. College to offer students the opportunity to take dual enrollment courses in either pathway. Many of these courses are free to the student. Transportation to the LBW Opp campus is available during the school day.
