Granbury High School will be hosting a meeting for students enrolling in dual credit courses for the 2012-13 school year. The meeting will be held at 6:00 P.M. on Thursday, April 26, 2012, in the GHS cafeteria.
Mike McCoy, Director of Learning Management and Design at Weatherford College, will be sharing information with students and parents about dual credit courses. Topics will include the application and registration process, grading policies, and expectations of professors.
Dual credit courses offer opportunities for GHS students to receive both high school and college credit. There will be several courses available next school year at either GHS or the Weatherford College Education Center at Granbury: algebra, botany, English, drama, government, history, kinesiology, psychology, sociology, speech, and zoology.
“Enrolling in dual credit or college courses while still in high school provides several benefits,” said GHS principal Jeremy Ross. “Students get a head start on college course work and have a better opportunity to obtain an associate’s degree in less time. The courses also prepare students for college-level work before they leave home in order to be successful in real college settings.”
Parents and students are asked to bring the student’s school computer login and password in order to complete online applications following the presentation.
