dual enrollment

For us, dual enrollment means that you are taking a-la-carte classes at Ravenburn while you are still in high school. The term "enrollment" is a bit tricky here, because you don't actually enroll in Ravenburn. You have to be at least 18 and meet some other requirements to enroll in our BA programs (?). But the phrase "dual enrollment" is in common use, so we use it here.

Our general-learning classes are most amenable to dual enrollment. We offer units in history, civics, communication, writing, science, philosophy, religion, and ethics. Only 1 general-learning class (we refer to them as "units") is offered at a time during each quarter, and if you are going to use it for the complete high-school class instead of as just a supplement to other work you are doing, then you'll need to do extra reading and writing with the instructor in order to bring the coursework up to the level of a semester-long class. This is because our general-learning classes are 2 credits long and most dual-enrollment classes need to be at least 3 credits long.

You may also need to have land meetings with the instructor. This will cause the price of the unit to be more expensive than usual.

We also allow dual-enrollment to happen for our classes related to ministry, but these may or may not fit into your high-school transcript and your state's requirement. It is not our responsibility to ensure that the work you take with us complies with your state's homeschooling requirements.

If you earn a passing grade in any work you take with us, we will put the grade on a transcript so that you have a record of it. 

 

SOME OTHER POINTS TO KEEP IN MIND

1) The Ravenburn coursework is college level. You can use the work to retro-apply it to your high-school requirements, but it will be harder than the usual high-school class.

 

2) While any grades you have on our transcript can apply to a Ravenburn program if you choose to enroll once you are done with high school, this does not mean that Ravenburn college credits can transfer out to a college or university outside of faculty-school colleges. Our approach is simply too non-traditional.

3) Material may be assigned that has mature elements. Any serious foray into how perennial issues relevant to human existence are manifested in the different strata of secular culture will involve running up against things like profanity, violence, and sexually explicit material. So we do seek to provide a controlled space where these elements can be encountered and critically analyzed by students under Christian guidance, but we presume a certain level of age and maturity in our students as we discuss these issues.
