Bethesda Academy has partnered with Savannah Technical College to be one of the first high schools to offer the new Early College Essentials Technical Certificate of Credit, as a dual enrollment opportunity for students to earn college credit while still in high school.
Students that complete the Early College Essentials Technical Certificate of Credit will be able to graduate with both their high school diploma from Bethesda Academy as well as with six general core college courses (18 hours) from Savannah Technical College that transfer to any University System of Georgia (USG) institution.
Savannah Technical College also offers occupational program courses for students to take through Dual Enrollment. If students complete occupational courses, they may be eligible to graduate with occupational program certifications at the time of their graduation from Bethesda Academy.
Savannah Technical College offers 28 general core courses that transfer to any University System of Georgia institution. General core courses include English, mathematics, natural sciences, humanities/fine arts, and more.
Dual Enrollment is open to any student in grades 9-12 who has a grade point average of 2.6 or higher in Georgia.
