AG STUDENTS EARN COLLEGE CREDIT WITH SENCAP & DC ADVANTAGE PROGRAM
The Southeast Nebraska Career Academy Partnership was designed to provide students at Ashland-Greenwood High School with opportunities to explore career and education opportunities while still in high school. In conjunction with SENCAP, students have also enrolled in general education courses like math and English through Southeast Community College’s DC Advantage dual-credit program. Students who actively enroll in both programs have the ability to earn college credit hours while still in high school getting them one-step closer towards earning a post-secondary credential in a program of study at significantly reduced cost.
A three-year program overview shows that Ashland-Greenwood has had 141 student participants in the SENCAP/DC Advantage program. The statistical overview shows that there have been 385 courses completed for a total number of 1,545 hours completed; a 91% pass rate with an average GPA of 3.04. Thirteen percent of the students have taken classes online while 87% have taken classes face to face with an instructor. These students combine for a total tuition savings of $54,608, not to mention that the Ashland-Greenwood school system pays for their books.
