Although the school year is relatively young, it’s time for juniors and seniors to submit their dual enrollment registrations for second semester.
According to school counseling director Lisa Albee, students already taking a dual enrollment English class on campus with Ms. Avery or Dr. Shipe received their forms in class. These forms needed to be turned in those teachers before Oct. 3.
Students who would like to enroll in their first dual class or who are currently involved in taking dual classes off campus need to obtain their forms from their school counselor and have them turned in before Oct. 10.
First-time enrollment students will also need to have an unweighted GPA of 3.0 and take the Postsecondary Education Readiness Test (PERT) at Broward College.
“The PERT exam must be completed before obtaining the registration form from your counselor,” Mrs. Albee said.
Students are required to pass all three parts of the PERT, which includes sections of reading, writing and math.
Passing this exam will prove that a student is ready to face the rigors of a college-level course.
“Getting a real college experience would be a good opportunity to challenge myself,” sophomore Giavanna Costa said.
