Earn college credits in high school.
If you can, you should. Earning college credits while you’re still a high-school student makes all the sense in the world. The money your family will save can approach thousands of dollars because a State law requires high schools to pay tuition costs.
Students in 11th and 12th grades are eligible to take college courses while still in school. You’ll get some college experience — and some credits out of your way. That’s a win-win situation for everyone!
Dip your toes in the college water and start charting the course to your future.
Kirtland Early College is a three-year program that begins in 11th grade and concludes with a 13th year at Kirtland. Simply put, you can earn both a high school diploma and an associate degree. And the best part? The first two years are free because a State law requires high schools to pay tuition costs.
