MHC, high school team up on dual credit offerings

March 13, 2018

Medicine Hat College and St Joseph’s Collegiate in Brooks, Alberta are partnering to offer Grade 11 and 12 students the opportunity to work towards college credits while in high school. Students will be able to take Health Care Aide and Criminal Justice courses and earn credits at both the postsecondary and high-school levels. “Dual credit programming provides high school students an excellent opportunity to not just earn post-secondary credits, but also explore possible career options,” said MHC Interim Vice-president Academic Sandy Vanderburgh. “It’s a great way to encourage post-secondary participation, and help students determine their path forward after graduation.” MHC
