The administration at LHS is excited to announce our newest dual enrollment options for the Class of 2020. We have partnered with Motlow State Community College to offer a select group of students from the Class of 2020 the opportunity to graduate with both their high school degree AND their associate's degree!! These students will earn 62 college credit hours throughout the course of their junior and senior years at LHS, taking 20 dual enrollment classes (see the attachment for course details)!
Through this program, these students will pay approximately $1000 to earn their associate's degree. A student enrolled in these same classes at Motlow post-high school would pay approximately $11,500! That's a savings of $10,500! Since our students often come from low income households, we are thrilled to be able to offer a way for them to earn a degree at a lower cost.
This is an amazing opportunity for the students at LHS and for the La Vergne community, and we are excited to embark on this new adventure. Our hope is to continue to build our dual enrollment program so that we can increase our student's post-graduate success and continue to have a positive impact on our community. We believe it takes a village to succeed and we appreciate all of your continued support for LHS and our dual enrollment program!
