Dual Credit

Dual Credit allows juniors and seniors from partnered Boston High Schools to earn college credit while simultaneously receiving credit toward a high school diploma. This program is aimed at students who have an interest in STEM fields and Wentworth. The primary focus of the program is to develop students to be academically ready and prepare them for college by giving them the opportunity to experience a college level class before they graduate from high school. 

Benefits of participating in Dual Credit: 

  • Early exposure to an authentic college experience 

  • Students who participate in Dual Credit are more prepared for college than those who do not 

  • Students get a head-start and earn transferable college credits
