Early College

Through a partnership with NKU, Thomas More, and Gateway Community and Technical College (GCTC) students attend college for half a day at the GCTC Florence/Union campus. Students have the opportunity to earn 24 college credit hours or more in one year.  These courses are provided at a dramatically reduced rate of $72 per credit hour ($216 per three-hour course), saving a student thousands in future college expenses.

The program provides students with college-level experiences in high school, so they are better prepared for post-secondary success after graduation. Classes count towards general education requirements, as well as, requirements for the associate's or bachelor's degree. The courses are weighted and will transfer to any Kentucky public two-year or four-year college.  

Students are encouraged to take the February ACT during their sophomore year and need to be at benchmark to be eligible for the program.  Please contact your College Career Coach and/or Guidance Counselor for more information.
