NEWS RELEASE ISSUED BY CARL JUNCTION R-1 SCHOOL DISTRICT

Carl Junction students can earn college degree while still in high school

Carl Junction’s sophomores will be the first students able to earn a high school diploma and a college associate’s degree at the same time. A new cooperative program with Crowder College will pave the way for Carl Junction students to get a jump start on college.

“This is an opportunity for a student who is very focused and driven to shorten their path to their chosen career, “explained High School Principal David Pyle.

Sixty-one credit hours are needed to earn an associate degree of general studies. Crowder College currently offers 36 dual credit hours at Carl Junction High School. Six additional dual credit hours are offered through other universities but will be accepted for the general studies degree. Students who are interested in earning the associate’s degree will need to complete the additional college hours through online courses or on the Crowder campus during the summers leading up to graduation.

Students in the dual credit/dual enrollment program can also take advantage of the discounted rate of $60 per credit hour while taking any courses through Crowder compared to their normal rate of $78 per credit hour. Additional college fees are waived for high school students and text books are loaned at no charge to the student.

“Partnering with Crowder College to offer this opportunity to our students is another way that we are helping our students further their education and find success beyond high school,” said Pyle.

Students in the Class of 2016 who would like to graduate with a high school diploma and an associate degree should contact their school counselor.
