CCA Dual Credit

PACESetter Program is an exciting partnership between the Community College of Aurora (CCA) and Aurora Public Schools (Aurora Central High School).  It is designed to increase the number of high school students earning college credit.  The program allows eligible juniors and seniors the opportunity to earn college credit while in high school.  APS and CCA forged this partnership to challenge students in three ways.

 

Post Secondary Enrollment Options/High School is available for juniors and seniors to earn dual credit (for both high school and college transcripts) for classes taught within their home high school either by an instructor from CCA or by a high school teacher who has earned adjunct college instructor status.  Tuition for higher education courses shall be paid by APS in accordance with the qualifications of the PACESetter Program.

Post Secondary Enrollment Options/ Community College of Aurora is available for juniors and seniors to take courses at the CCA campus for both high school and college credit.  Tuition for higher education courses shall be paid by APS in accordance with the qualifications of the PACESetter Program.

Fast Track Program is available for students who have completed the requirements for high school graduation and who choose to take additional higher education courses during their senior year.  The students will remain eligible for sanctioned high school activities if they meet the academic and residency qualifications.  Tuition for higher education courses shall be paid by APS in accordance with the qualifications of the PACESetter Program.

 

These Dual credit opportunities are offered at students’ home high schools, Pickens Technical College, or the Community College of Aurora and other postsecondary institutions.  Dual credit simply means that the course work can count on the student’s high school transcript and on a transcript at the sponsoring postsecondary institution.  Note that each course and program has its own application process, specific credit availability, and may require additional fees.  Students should contact their school counselors to find out more about these opportunities.

For the 2010-11 school year the following classes are offered for Dual Credit.  Make an appointment with your Counselor in the Counseling Center:
