Students attend a post-secondary institution full-time or part-time during their junior and/or senior year of high school and receive high school credit and college credit simultaneously while attending college classes.
Students who are planning to register for Dual Enrollment in the summer or fall should be making plans to take the ACT or SAT in preparation for the colleges' admissions requirements and deadline. Scores may take about a month to acquire. When signing up to take the test, students must include the college they wish to attend for the program so that the scores are sent directly to the school. Following is a link to review a list of colleges and their requirements, including scores and application deadlines: https://www.usg.edu/student_affairs/prospective_students/opportunities.
Students who are interested in the program must meet with their assigned counselor for more information.
Dual Enrollment Scholars
Since its opening, Brookwood High School has honored academic achievement and has encouraged its students to challenge themselves with rigorous course selection. Continuing in this tradition, the Brookwood Dual Enrollment (DE) Scholar recognition is designed to pay tribute to students who have participated in the Dual Enrollment program.
The criteria for being named a Dual Enrollment Scholar is to be on track to complete a minimum of five Dual Enrollment courses with a cumulative “A” average in all Dual Enrollment courses by the end of the first semester of the senior year. Labs that carry a credit of 0.0 and courses that have a college credit value of less than 3.0 will not be included in the determination.
The Brookwood High School DE Scholars will have the opportunity to purchase a medallion to be worn with the graduation gown. They will also have their names permanently displayed on a plaque to be displayed on the Brookwood DE Scholars Wall in A100 Hall. Finally, students who qualify for this honor will be recognized at a celebration in April and will receive their purchased medallions at that time.
