Discover our dual credit options


Our dual credit courses let students earn high school and college credit by taking a single class. For many high school students it is an affordable way to earn college credit.

At most institutions, students will enroll in classes with a college professor and learn within the college institution’s learning management system. Upon successful completion of a dual credit course, students will earn a half credit at Sevenstar Academy for each 3 or 4 credit hour college course. The college or university will also provide the student with a final grade and send instructions to request an official transcript for the credit(s) earned.

Please note that 100 level courses are considered college freshman level and are typically introductory courses with no prerequisites.
