Imagine earning a high school diploma and a college diploma at the same time. Alizza Schremp didn’t just imagine it, she did it. Alizza graduated from Livingston Academy High School in May of 2018. She also graduated magna cum laude from Volunteer State Community College with an Associate of Arts degree in University Studies. While at Livingston Academy, Alizza enrolled in Vol State’s dual enrollment program. Dual enrollment allows students to earn high school credit and college credit for the same course.
Volunteer State Community College will be offering new information technology dual enrollment courses to Robertson County high school students in a special program next school year. Interested students should meet with guidance counselors now. The classes are an introductory computer programming course in the fall and a course in Python programming language the following semester. The dual enrollment courses earn students both high school credits and college credits for the same learning experience.
