Dual Enrollment for Dual Credit is available to students attending public, private, parochial or church/religious schools pursuant to §16-28-1 of the Code of Alabama 1975, or who are receiving instruction from a home school/private tutor pursuant to §16-28-5 of the Code of Alabama 1975.
Dual enrollment is a great way to get a head start on training for the workforce or for a four-year degree. Some students even graduate with their associate degree from an Alabama Community College before graduating high school! Sylacauga City Schools partners with Central Alabama Community College (CACC), The University of Alabama, and Jacksonville State University to allow students to take college-level courses.
Eligible students must be in 10th, 11th, or 12th grades, have a 2.5 GPA and obtain written approval from a principal or superintendent. To find out more about dual enrollment, please visit the Sylacauga High School Guidance Office page.
Upon the recommendation of the Superintendent, the Board may establish guidelines in accordance with the regulations of the State Department of Education by which qualified high school students are allowed to take post-secondary college courses for high school credit.
