Westgate Community School is a tuition-free public charter school that is open to all students.
Our high school program has concurrent enrollment, also known as dual enrollment, which is a program that allows our high school students to take free college courses for credit at Front Range Community College where they have the opportunity earn an Associate Degree along with their high school diploma!
There are several reasons why high school students might want to participate in concurrent enrollment:
- Credit toward college: Many colleges and universities will accept concurrent enrollment credits toward a degree, meaning that high school students can get a head start on their college education and potentially graduate sooner.
- Cost savings: Taking college courses while in high school can save students and their families money on tuition and other college costs.
- College readiness: Participating in concurrent enrollment can help high school students get a feel for the rigors of college-level coursework and build the skills and knowledge they will need to succeed in college.
- Career exploration: Concurrent enrollment can allow high school students to explore different fields of study and help them make more informed decisions about their future careers.
- Personal growth: Taking college courses while in high school can help students develop independence, self-motivation, and critical thinking skills, all of which can be beneficial for their future success.
Don't miss out on this amazing opportunity for your student to get a head start on their college education and prepare for their future.
