I've heard of this in Michigan. Some people have cautioned me not to use it if we want to get scholarship money from a college, but I think it's worth looking into, anyway (when we get there!) In any case, anything we can look into to help is worth it!

And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ. Col. 3:23

Hi Deb,

We are in NH and use VLACS for dual enrollment. It's been working great for my teens. I'll send you a message.

My friends from other states say that it is quite expensive if you are out of state.

For anyone in NH, (and just in case it is offered someplace else), I thought I'd share our great discovery this year.
Our community college system offers an online program called e-start that allows high school students to register for dual enrollment classes at a greatly reduced cost through VLACS (Virtual Learning Academy - online free school for NH residents).

This allows your high school student to take classes through the college and earn both high school and college credit at the same time! The cost (this year) is $150 per class plus the book(s). For a 3-4 credit college class, that is a great deal! Plus it gives your student a jump start on their future. All NH comm. college credits are transferable within the state schools and possibly to others as well. It also looks great on their transcript.

Enrollment for the Spring semester starts this month (Nov). My daughter is currently taking a US History class and is doing really well.
I will say that if your child is NOT a self-motivated learner and willing to be really independent in their learning, this is probably not a good fit for them. There is NO LIVE class or lecture. But if your child can handle it - I highly recommend it.

Blessings on the journey~
Deb

Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.
