Dual Credit

Dual Credit Programs

Aspen View Public Schools -- in partnership with Alberta Education, post-secondary and industry -- are providing Dual Credit opportunities for students.

What are the benefits of Dual Credit courses?

  • Participating in a Dual Credit course allows students to earn credits in high school and post-secondary institutions at the same time, as well as earn credits that may lead to preferred placement and workplace certification.
  • Students gain confidence to succeed academically in a post-secondary environment.
  • Students use the latest education technologies which prepare them for the technological workforce.
  • Students learn what college and university instructors expect, while still in familiar high school surroundings.

Our college partners are Athabasca University, Northern Lakes College, Lakeland College and Portage College.

If you have questions, please contact Donna Wesley, Director of Curriculum and Technology at donna.wesley@aspenview.org or 780-675-7080 ext.05.

What follows is a summary of the options available through each college partner, with info on how to apply for each.
