Nine Seniors Earn Community College Associate Degree Before Their High School Graduation

On May 15, three Lakeland High School seniors and six Nansemond River High School seniors graduated from Paul D. Camp Community College with an associate’s degree. Next month, they will walk the stage at SPS commencement exercises to receive their high school diploma.

Since 2010, a total of 12 seniors in Suffolk Public Schools have taken advantage of the community college’s dual-enrollment program, which allows high school students to simultaneously earn both college and high school credits.

“It is wonderful to see these students reach the goals they’ve worked so hard to attain,” PDCCC Dual Enrollment Coordinator Jeanette Pellegrin stated. “It takes extreme time-management skills and dedication to achieve this accomplishment.”

Interim college president Dr. Bill Aiken said, “This program is essential to those students who are focused on completing academic and career goals at a faster pace than the traditional student.”

Students are required to earn 61 college credit hours to be awarded the college’s general studies associate’s degree. At the same time, they must complete the requirements for an advanced studies high school diploma, which is 26 high school credits. While some courses count toward both high school credits and college credits, these dedicated students must also take some college-required courses over the summer, online, or in the evenings. Dual-credit (DC) courses taught at the high schools follow a college curriculum, and include DC Pre-Calculus, DC U.S. History, DC Biology, DC English Composition, DC Government, and DC Psychology. Students pursuing the associate’s degree must also take college-only courses, such as Introduction to Micro-Computers, a Fine Arts course in music or art, Public Speaking, College Survival Skills, and Practical Reasoning.

For dual-credit courses taught at the high school, students pay a reduced tuition cost. For courses taken at the college, students pay full tuition. The result is still saving families the cost of four full years of college. Another advantage is that students’ community college coursework is typically accepted by Virginia universities which can reduce the length of time needed to earn a bachelor’s degree.

Congratulations to the following Suffolk Public Schools’ community college graduates:

  • Lakeland High School … Reagan Colley, 17, will be attending Old Dominion University in the fall to pursue her Ph.D. in Pediatric Audiology.
