Dual Enrollment at The Summit Academy

You know that an investment in your student’s Catholic education is an investment for a lifetime (and the next).

However, what if you could further increase that value by lowering the hard costs of obtaining a college degree?

In addition to preparing students for college, we help families recoup educational expenses by lowering the total cost of higher education!

In the 2018-19 school year, juniors and seniors at The Summit will have the opportunity to obtain up to 15 college credits at a fraction of the cost.

Dual Enrollment offers other significant advantages:

  • $50/credit hour through Dual Enrollment vs. an average cost of over $250/credit, (not including fees, room and board), at Virginia state colleges.

  • Unlike the AP, students earn credit based on academic performance of an entire semester, not simply the results of one test.

  • Credits are awarded by Germanna Community College. Germanna’s program is structured such that most credits are transferable to all Virginia community colleges and most 4-year colleges and universities within the Commonwealth.

  • Dual Enrollment demonstrates college readiness and shows that students have gained exposure to the rigors of university level course work.
