Babcock High School Dual Enrollment Program with Florida Gulf Coast University and Florida Southwestern University
Babcock High School’s Dual Enrollment program, in partnership with Florida Gulf Coast University (FGCU) and Florida Southwestern University (FSW), offers an exceptional opportunity for students to gain a head start on their college education. These programs allow high school students to enroll in college-level courses at either university while still completing their high school diploma. It’s an ideal pathway for students who are ready to embrace the challenge of higher education and wish to accelerate their academic journey.
The Dual Enrollment program is tailored for students who demonstrate academic readiness and the maturity to handle the demands of college coursework. Participation in this program not only provides a taste of college life but also allows students to earn college credits that can be applied towards their future degree. This unique opportunity not only enhances their academic credentials but also provides valuable insights into university-level studies.
Enrolled students can choose from a wide range of courses offered by FSW or the FGCU ACE program, enabling them to explore and deepen their understanding of subjects that interest them. This exposure to college-level education not only bolsters their academic profile but also aids in a smoother transition to full-time college education post-high school.
To be eligible for the Dual Enrollment program, students must meet certain academic criteria, including a requisite GPA, and be approved by both Babcock High School and FSW or FGCU. These collaborative programs are a testament to our commitment to providing students with diverse and challenging educational opportunities, preparing them for success in college and beyond.
