Dual Enrollment Externships

Dual Enrollment / Dual Credit Agreements

The Academies provide a seamless path from high school to postsecondary education where students can earn college credit while in high school.

  • Nashville State Community College
  • Middle Tennessee State University
  • Volunteer State Community College
  • Tennessee Technology Centers

The advantages are clear:

  1. reduced college cost
  2. less time to complete the college program
  3. the option to take advanced technical courses in their college program where appropriate
