PREPARING STUDENTS: WCSC doubles up on academic options

March 4, 2014

SOUTH WHITLEY — “Big enough to deliver, small enough to care.” — That is the mantra for Whitko Community School Corporation.

But it is now exemplified, more than ever, through an academic opportunity offered at Whitko High School.

Dual-credit classes are becoming increasingly common in Whitley County high schools. The opportunity to take college-level classes, while attending high school is attractive to many students.

The incentive to earn college credit cuts students’ time in post-secondary education as well as save money.

“With the dual-credit offerings available at Whitko, at the end of four years, our freshmen students can graduate high school and start college as a sophomore,” said WHS Principal David Parker. “The advantage for the student is two-fold. They kill two birds with one stone — earning both high school and college credit. Because of our relationship with Ivy Tech, our students can take dual-credit courses for free.”
