High School Student Programs College Advantage

Students learn first hand the demands of going to college while still in high school. They experience the process of enrolling in college classes; get a feel for the costs associated with tuition, fees and textbooks; and participate in classes addressing the same outcomes and competencies as courses offered on the Barton campus. Courses vary by participating high school; dual credits are determined by high school administration.

Coursework is available in the fall and spring semesters and is offered right in the student’s high school building. Faculty members are generally high school instructors who serve as Barton associate faculty members. Students participating in the College Advantage program via the North Central Distance Learning Network (NCDLN) receive instruction from Barton’s full-time faculty members.

A student’s transition from high school to college is enhanced and students are introduced to academic enrichment and challenging college coursework. Students and their families are exposed to valuable learning lessons which support remaining college experiences.
