Dual Enrollment

Mariner High School Accelerated Opportunities

Program Overview

Dual Enrollment allows high school students to take college level courses and receive high school and college credit at the same time. The main focus of a dual enrollment educational track is to shorten the time necessary for a student to complete the requirements of a high school diploma and a postsecondary degree.

There is no cost to the student for dual enrolment courses; tuition is free. The books needed for each course are provided free of charge to public high school students.

To be eligible for dual enrollment students must be enrolled in a public school or registered as a home school student within The Lee County School District. If a student attends a prive school in Florida, the school must be assigned a DOE school number. Students must attain a 3.0 unweighted GPA for seniors. Sophomores and juniors need a 3.5 and second semester freshmen are required to have a 3.5 unweighted, cumulative GPA. Juniors with 70% of academic classes at the honor-level can qualify with a 3.0 un-weighted GPA. Students must also attain a minimum passing score on the ACT-E, SAT - R, or CPT. Students must be a least 14 years old.
