WHAT IS DUAL CREDIT?
Dual credit provides HHS students the opportunity to earn high school and college credit simultaneously. The dual credit courses are offered through Lee College and taught by Lee College professors on HHS campus. There are a variety of courses offered, both elective and core, as well as a Criminal Justice Program, Cosmetology Program and an Instrumentation Program.
All dual credit students must complete the dual credit process and test college ready on the TSI to be accepted into the DC program.
