Get a jump start on college and prepare for your first college year while still in high school!
Dual Enrollment allows high school students the option to earn high school and college credit at the same time. It also gives them the opportunity to experience college-level coursework before taking on a full-time course load.
You can choose to take almost any class Carroll offers based on a graduation requirement, or just try out a class in a program you’re interested in to see if it is what you would like to study in college. Ask your high school counselor or contact the Admissions Office at Carroll to discuss course eligibility that makes sense for your goals and schedule.
A variety of course formats are available including in-person, online or a blend of both. Classes like English 101, Math and general education electives are offered in many CCPS high schools to allow students the chance to try a dual enrollment class without having to leave their school building. (These are all in-person classes.)
Talk with your high school counselor to see how dual enrollment classes might fit into your schedule, or contact the Admissions Office for an appointment.
