College can be very expensive these days. With the economy sagging as badly as it is, jobs are much harder to come by without an education. If you are worried about how to send your kiddos to college after high school, there could be a solution available to you now. Some schools in Texas are offering dual credit classes. These classes will help your child earn college credit and high school credit at the same time for the same courses. Here are the 3 top reasons why you should consider getting your kiddo involved in the dual credit program in your child’s ISD.
- Partnerships between Texas secondary schools and Texas colleges and universities will help juniors and seniors earn college level credits before graduation. These credits will transfer to universities allowing these students to graduate earlier than if they were to start college classes after high school.
- The high school will pay for all or some of the schooling and the students get the opportunity to experience college first hand.
- Your child will be working hard and keeping busy. Worrying about your child getting off task and getting into trouble will no longer be an issue. The workload will be significant and the responsibility to keep their grades up will be maximized. Certainly you’ve heard the saying, "The devil finds work for idle hands." There won’t be any idle hands here.
It is our responsibility to give them all the tools they need to be successful in life.
So, get on board and find out what classes are being offered at your child’s ISD. Help your child open doors of opportunity enabling them to be the ones to choose their own destiny.
