Dual Credit courses offer grade 12 students an opportunity to explore university and college level courses. As of right now, our students are limited to one dual credit course/program in their highs school career unless they are directly connected and required by a specific Post Secondary Credential. Please talk to Ms. Giesbrecht if you have any questions.
