The Dual Credit High School Enrollment Program is for juniors and seniors in high school. It allows them to earn high school and college course credits concurrently. The college credits are offered at a reduced rate and in many cases credits will transfer to other institutions.
Classes are prepared by NCTA faculty for online delivery using the Blackboard course management system. This virtual classroom provides flexibility to teach and learn at a time of day best suited to the student and the school. The online courses contain lectures with audio voice-overs, laboratory assignments, homework assignments, online quizzes and tests.
A few distance learning math and horticulture courses are taught in "real time" through various methods of delivery.
