Several students graduating from Orange County High Schools will receive an associate degree in addition to a high school diploma.
This means that upon entering college, these students will be done with their general education coursework and able to pursue their major courses immediately.
At the school board meeting 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 10, these students will be recognized for their achievements.
These students achieved their associate degree through the dual-enrollment program with Orange County Public Schools. Students can enroll in Accelerated Placement courses. If students score high enough on AP exams, they earn college credit.
These students also are able to take dual enrollment classes through Valencia College. An agreement between OCPS and Valencia College allows students to take their classes and receive textbooks free of charge.
