GCPS Plays Host to First-Ever Dual Enrollment Information Meeting

The term dual enrollment refers to high school students (typically juniors and seniors) taking college courses with the goal of earning both college and high school credit for the same course. Goochland County Public Schools is pleased to offer a broad range of dual enrollment opportunities. Goochland High School’s program is already one of the most expansive in the state for high schools with less than 1,000 students – and it’s growing, offering coursework from Reynolds Community College, Longwood University, James Madison University, and the University of Virginia.

Last night we welcomed more than one hundred families to our Dual Enrollment Information Night at GHS. Following a brief welcome and overview of the evening’s program, officials from James Madison University, Longwood University, and J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College led “breakout sessions” in 30-minute periods over the course of 2 hours. The program offered overviews of the division’s current dual enrollment offerings (as well as those planned for 2015-16).

Our dual enrollment description and fee schedule for the current school year may be accessed here.

We look forward to hosting a similar informational evening for our families annually.
