Dual Enrollment Opportunities Dual enrollment gives high school students the opportunity to take approved courses at accredited institutions while completing high school graduation requirements. Courses taken must provide opportunities not currently available to students at Wakefield High School. This includes courses of an advanced and/or expanded nature. High school graduation credit and grades will be awarded by Wakefield High School when the official transcript is received at Wakefield High School. Quality points will be calculated as defined in the Wake County Public School System High School Program Planning Guide. The student's official high school transcript will include the course and grade.
Wakefield High School participates in the following dual enrollment programs:
NC Virtual Public Schools
Offsite College Courses
North Carolina Virtual Public School (NCVPS) NCVPS will provide students with expanded academic options by offering online courses and online services such as test preparation and credit recovery (summer only) to North Carolina students. By virtue of their online course delivery, students from all areas of the state have access to courses and highly qualified teachers in subjects that may not be available at Wakefield High School. These "non-traditional" courses are designed for students who are self-directed, meaning that they are responsible to do their lessons and assignments without having a set schedule of class meetings. However, you can be assured that regardless of the online courses that NCVPS choose to provide, all NCVPS courses will meet the curriculum content standards that are set forth by the Dept. of Public Instruction and that all of their courses will meet the recognized quality assurance standards for e-learning courses. Students will be taught by NC-certified teachers and the grades that they earn in their NCVPS course will transfer to Wakefield High School and become part of their academic record. Only courses not offered at Wakefield High School will be approved for NCVPS. Please see your counselor for more information.
To enroll in a NCVPS course, please download and complete the dual enrollment registration form. Please bring the completed form to your school counselor to be registered in the on-line course. Please remember that on-line courses are rigorous. Excellent time management skills are needed to be successful in an on-line course. Students should commit to 5-10 hours per week to complete class requirements. Click here for general information and instructions.
Offsite College Courses Each institution has their own procedure for dual enrollment. It is best to contact the cooperating college directly to find out what courses are available.
