 School NEWS


More than 30 graduating seniors from 12 Orange County Public Schools (OCPS) high schools walked across the graduation stage last month with more than just a high school diploma. These students also earned an associate’s degree through participation in the district’s dual-enrollment program.

The dual-enrollment program allows eligible high school students to pursue postsecondary coursework at Valencia College while earning credit toward high school completion. Students in the program can enroll in a combination of advanced placement courses, which earn college credit if they pass their exam, and Valencia College courses. An agreement between Orange County and Valencia College allows for dual-enrollment students to take their college courses free of charge, including books.

The students from the North Learning Community schools who completed enough college coursework to earn their associate’s degree and completed all of their general education requirements include:

-Sarah Munyon, Aundria Cohen and Annika Nichols from Apopka High School
-Kayla Minehart of Wekiva High School​
