Dual Credits

The Dual Credit program provides an opportunity for senior students to attend college to take courses in selected career areas in the College or Apprenticeship Pathway. These certificate, diploma or level one apprenticeship programs count on both the secondary school and college transcript. They provide new and varied learning opportunities by exposing students to the college setting, culture and expectations. Upper Grand DSB is partnered with three colleges through the School College Work Initiative, a consortium that covers all costs for students to participate.  More information is available at  Dual Credit Informaion for 2019-2020
