Discovery Academy, also known as concurrent enrollment, is an initiative of St. Cloud Technical & Community College that allows high school students to take college courses in a high school setting. Qualified high school teachers, mentored by SCTCC faculty, teach courses in partner high schools. Students simultaneously earn college and high school credit. Discovery Academy, or concurrent enrollment, is similar to Postsecondary Enrollment Options (PSEO), which allows high school students to take college courses on the SCTCC campus.
Additional information on concurrent enrollment can be found at:
- Minnesota Statute: 124D.09 Postsecondary Enrollment Options Act, specifically subdivision 10a.
- Minnesota Department of Education
SCTCC is actively working toward program accreditation by the National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships.
