Students are able to take college level courses to count both for college and high school credit through the DPS Concurrent Enrollment Program. DPS will reimburse a student for classes taken through Concurrent Enrollment up to the community college rate. An example of Concurrent Enrollment would be taking a college level math course and having it also count for a year of high school math.
HS counselors will hold an informational meeting about off-site Concurrent Enrollment in October for spring courses and March for fall courses. Please see the master schedule, or reach out to your counselor for more information.
