Dual Credit open house attracts 80 at NLC

FORT ST. JOHN – More than 80 Grade 10 and 11 students and parents from across School District 60 attended a special open house to learn how they can start the transition to a career in Grade 11 or 12 through Dual Credit programs at Northern Lights College.

The open house, held December 11, provided students with information on programs and careers available at NLC, and how they can get a head start on their futures by earning post-secondary credits while still in secondary school through Dual Credit program options.

Keeanna Holden was looking for more information about Visual Arts programs offered at the Dawson Creek Campus. She also hopes she can get some advanced credits in Biology while still in high school. Her father, Hal, is very impressed with the concept of Dual Credit programming.

“The idea that students can get a head start in their post-secondary education with the Dual Credit program is an amazing opportunity. I wish I had this option when I went to school,” he said.

Also in attendance was student Nicholas Crawford, who wanted to learn more about the Automotive Service Technician and Welding programs.
