What is a collegiate academy?
A collegiate academy is a high school that offers students the opportunity to earn dual credit – credit for both high school courses and college courses. College tuition fees are waived. This gives students the opportunity to earn an associate degree or up to 60 hours of college credit, tuition free.
Students will attend ninth and 10th grade on the collegiate academy campus in a dedicated portion of the building at their high school campus where they will complete their basic courses and receive in-depth instruction to prepare them for college success. In their junior year, students will receive free transportation to attend tuition-free classes on the campus of their community college partner where they will continue their studies until graduation.
