College Credit

Fletcher Academy provides the opportunity for diligent students with good grades to earn college credit through both dual credit classes on our campus and online classes. The college credit offered includes some of the General Education courses required by most colleges and universities. The college credits are transferable to most colleges and universities.

Dual Credit Classes

Dual Credit Classes are taught on the Fletcher Academy campus by our teachers that are approved as adjunct university faculty. Some classes may not be available each year. Students enrolled in Dual Credit classes pay a small percentage of regular college tuition charges and full-price for all textbooks. Full payment is due to Fletcher Academy prior to the beginning of all Dual Credit classes. Payment may not be charged to the student’s account. Students must meet the minimum GPA and assessment test requirement. Dropping a Dual Credit Course may forfeit all payment for the course.
