Napa Valley College is hosting a series of information sessions for high school students to learn about the benefits of dual enrollment every Thursday, April 1 through August 15 at 6 p.m.
Dual enrollment at Napa Valley College allows high school students to take college courses while still in high school, which gives them credits that can count toward their high school diploma, help them complete college prerequisites and requirements, or earn college credit toward a future college degree. Summer break is the ideal time to take advantage of dual enrollment opportunities at Napa Valley College with short six- and eight-week sessions and free per-unit credit enrollment for high school students.
Research has shown that students who participate in dual enrollment are more likely to graduate from high school and persist in college. Most students taking dual enrollment classes complete at least nine units before entering college, and those students are far more likely to succeed once they get there. The California Community Colleges sees dual enrollment as supporting the system’s Vision for Success, a set of goals and commitments that include boosting the numbers of students earning degrees or certificates and transferring to a University of California or California State University campus.
Summer registration begins April 27 and classes begin June 14. At the information sessions on Thursday, April 1 through August 15, students will learn about the benefits of dual enrollment and the application and registration process, and they will have the opportunity to have their questions answered.
