Online Courses for home schoolers and high school students
August 08, 2005 (PRLEAP.COM) Education NewsBryan College decided last spring to build an online campus and with the help of the Learning House the first session begins on August 22, 2005.
Bryan College’s first online program is focused on high school students interested in getting a head start on college. Dr. Cal White, Vice President for Academic Affairs at Bryan College explains, “Many high school students contact Bryan College about enrolling in dual education programs, and we decided to offer a series of online courses for these students.”
“Our goal is to provide courses that high schoolers can take for dual enrollment credit — fulfilling high school requirements while getting a head start on college credits as well,” stated Dr. Cal White. “More and more students entering Bryan College are searching for a place of higher values and Christ-centered education. This program allows us to reach beyond our physical location to offer high quality Christ-centered education to home school and high school students.”
We intend to increase offerings as we go forward. We hope eventually to offer 24 to 30 credits online that can be packaged into a certificate program.
