Concurrent Enrollment

Concurrent Enrollment (CE) provides high school students the opportunity to take college-credit-bearing courses taught by college-approved high school teachers. It is a low-cost, scalable model for bringing accelerated courses to students in high schools. Students gain exposure to the academic challenges of college while in their supportive high school environment and earn transcripted college credit when they complete the course.

Benefits of College in High School Programs

RCTC is an NACEP accredited program.Concurrent Enrollment also facilitates close collaboration between high school teachers and college faculty that fosters alignment of secondary and postsecondary curricula.

Sometimes called dual credit, dual enrollment, or college in the schools, concurrent enrollment partnerships differ from other dual enrollment models because high school instructors teach college courses.
