Concurrent Enrollment 

The Summit Academy is proud to offer our students the opportunity to particpate in Concurrent Enrollment  (CE).  CE programs provide high school students with the opportunity to enroll in postsecondary courses and earn credit at no cost to them for tuition. Colorado data show that students in concurrent enrollment programs are more likely to enroll in postsecondary education, have higher postsecondary grade point averages and retention rates and decreased need for remediation.   In May 2009, the Colorado State Legislature passed the Concurrent Enrollment Programs Act. The Act created the Concurrent Enrollment program, defined as the simultaneous enrollment of a qualified student in a local education provider and in one or more postsecondary courses, including academic or career and technical education courses, at an institution of higher education.

 

Summit students in grades 9-12 can participate in Concurrent Enrollment.  Classes may be taken at the local community college. Interested students should begin enrollment procedures beginning in January for the fall semester college courses.   Students enrolled in Summit may choose to participate as a full- or part-time student.
