LETTER: Dual credit program worth trying


Editor: Students – don’t miss out on this opportunity.

Students in grade 11 and 12 should speak with their career guidance teacher about the dual credit program offered by the Public and Catholic school boards and St Clair College.

Basically, it’s a program that runs on Thursdays throughout the school year. It’s called dual credit because students receive a high school and a college credit.

Students are picked up from their high school, taken to either St. Clair College in Chatham or in Windsor – depending on the course they’ve enrolled in – and at the end of the day they are transported back to their high school.

Students are provided with all the necessary protective clothing such as safety boots and welding masks if they choose the welding option. It’s a great way to try a trade while you are still in school.

There is a range of courses offered. For more information visit the St.Clair College website and enter Dual Credit in the search bar.

It’s a great program.
