Through established partnerships with Cairn University, KCA's Dual Enrollment Program allows academically prepared students to take discounted college courses while still in high school. Successful completion of these courses counts for both high school and college credit. These college courses are "transcripted" by the college which makes these credits transferable to the college of your choice.
All costs associated with taking a college course are paid by the student. Colleges will bill the student directly thus opening up opportunities for families to use 529 Plan and Education IRA savings. Juniors and Seniors interested in taking college courses should mark their course selection sheet accordingly. The Administration will make the final determination whether a high school student is eligible to take a college course during their Junior/Senior years. Below is a list of college courses offered by The King's Christian Academy. Please note that not every class is offered each school year.
ENROLLMENT: Students will bring home paperwork in late December/early January regarding dual enrollment in their current courses.
