With escalating tuition costs jeopardizing the dream of a college degree for many students nationwide, Southfield Public Schools announced its FasTrack College Prep programs designed to prepare students for college, while reducing the burden of tuition costs.
In addition to offering AP courses and an IB Diploma Program, Southfield’s Dual Enrollment program allows eligible high school students to take up to six credits per year at local colleges and universities. These students may take college courses at Oakland Community College, Wayne State University or University of Michigan Dearborn, in lieu of a seventh hour course or they may take a class on the weekend. Books, tuition and fees are free and covered by the district.
All three programs will be available at the new Southfield High School for the Arts and Technology opening this fall. University High School Academy offers both the AP and Dual Enrollment programs.
