The Pathways' JC Jumpstart program helps graduates prepare for the Community College transition before leaving high school. However, the program is not limited to seniors. High school students in other grades may participate as well. JC Jumpstart is an exciting opportunity for students to take college classes while enrolled in high school!
To ensure success dual enrollment, the following qualifying factors are considered prior to approval:
*Current grades (passing PCS courses with C’s or better)
*Rigor and combination of JC course(s) requested
*Extracurriculars and/or commitments outside of school
Dual enrollment offers the following advantages to students:
*Credit value up to 3.33 x HS credits
*Most college classes are weighted as “honors”
*College credits are “banked”
*Expands a-g options
