A dual credit is one that can be applied as both a secondary school credit and college elective credit.

In our Connecting to College Program, students attend Niagara College for a half-day four times a week earning two dual college/secondary credits. The student will also be enrolled in two more secondary school credits in an every- day half-day program at Holy Cross. There are a limited number of seats in the program for grade 12 students in their graduating year. Students must complete an application form that is submitted to Student Services and then sent to the School-College-Work representative at the school board.
