Dual Enrollment

Dual Enrollment

To offset the transition from high school to college or career, we are proud to offer dual enrollment as a means of allowing students the opportunity to earn units toward high school graduation while also earning college credit.  Bulloch County Schools has dual enrollment agreements with Georgia Southern University , East Georgia College and Ogeechee Technical College.  More than 500 of our high school students currently take advantage of this option.

Students who dual-enroll at Ogeechee Technical College and are working to complete any of their certificate and degree programs have the opportunity to participate in Ogeechee Tech's Charge Ahead Hiring Expos which help to match job/career opportunities with more than 20 local and area employers in high-demand career industries with high school students.

Local industries like Great Dane have embraced these programs at Ogeechee Technical College and have recruited our students for careers, signing bonuses, and post-secondary scholarships allowing our students to walk  straight from high school graduation to a career. "We want to see students build a career and move up through our organization," said Melissa Long, Great Dane's human resource manager. 

Work-Based Learning

Work-based Learning is an extension of the career-related education experiences within our Career Technical & Agricultural Education program.  Students in eleventh- and twelfth-grades, who are at least 16-years-of-age and have a defined career pathway, can participate and be placed at one of our more than 100 work sites with local business and industry partners. Work-based Learning coordinators at our high schools are available to assist local businesses and industries who wish to establish opportunities that are relevant to our students' career coursework or interests.

Work-based Learning placements provide students an opportunity to explore careers first-hand in an actual work setting.  It also can provide a possible income as some of our sites offer wages.  On average we have more than 160 work-based learning students, who work more than 50,000 hours during the school year and earn more than $350,000 in wages.
