Dual Credit/Dual Enrollment Playbook
The College Bound
Legacy the School of Sports Sciences' innovative rigorous curriculum is specifically designed to meet the needs of its diverse student population.
Legacy the School of Sport Sciences is committed to preparing students for the next level. Our campus is designed to emulate a college atmosphere, which encourages students to be accountable and responsible for themselves. They develop the behaviors in their early education that are necessary to navigate the demands of college life.
Another tool Legacy offers to prepare its students for the next level is the dual credit option. Qualifying high school students can earn college credits in select subject areas, potentially graduating high school with an associate degree from Lone Star College.
Prior to taking any dual credit course, students will speak with their high school counselor to determine their eligibility. The Texas Success Initiative (TSI) Assessment is used to determine college placement level in reading, mathematics, and writing for students pursuing credits. It is state required for all students who attend a public institution of higher education before they can be placed in any college level course.
High school students who are interested in more challenging courses or wanting to gain an advantage on college requirements may opt for the Dual Enrollment program. OnRamps empowers high school students to take on the role of a college student in a supportive environment that encourages their growth and future success.
Legacy’s partnership with UT OnRamps allows students to be enrolled in two academic institutions at once, earning credits that are applied both to high school diploma requirements and college graduation requisites. Depending on the course grade, students may be able to earn college credit that is guaranteed to be transferable to any public institution in Texas.
Classes are mentored by high school teachers while taking distance college courses led by college instructors. The current dual enrollment college courses offered at Legacy include English, Chemistry, Pre-Calculus, U.S. History, and Art.
