As students are busy poring over the 2013-14 G. Ray Bodley High School Course Catalog for next year’s scheduling, they, and their parents should take particular note of the many dual enrollment offerings.
These dual enrollment courses, which carry college credit for high school students as they earn high school credit toward graduation, have recently expanded to include business classes, and new in the 2014-15 school year will be a statistics course that will provide math students an alternative advanced course from Algebra 2 or PreCalc.
The dual enrollment courses are following with the District’s intent to increase rigor and relevance.
Many of the courses, including several through the Cayuga Community College Advantage Program are offered at no cost to the student and carry with them college credits that can be transferred to virtually all SUNY institutions.
Other courses are aligned with area colleges and universities including Rochester Institute of Technology, SUNY ESF, SUNY Oswego, and Onondaga Community College, to name a few. Some of the courses carry pre-requisites and are available to juniors and seniors depending on the course.
“We have been able to increase the courses that carry dual enrollment credits,” said GRB Principal Donna Parkhurst, “By re-tooling what we do using current staff.”
Teachers of the dual enrollment courses work with the college or university and follow the college’s curriculum for the course. Students also use the same course materials as students enrolled at the college.
Dual Enrollment college affiliations include institutions of higher learning such as Rochester Institute of Technology, SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry, SUNY Oswego, Cayuga Community College, and Onondaga Community College.
