A new program is underway at North High School in Davenport that allows students to graduate high school with a two-year college degree.

North High School is partnering with Scott Community College for the new dual enrollment graduation program.

The schools chose a total of 40 students to participate in the program that is free to students. North High Principal Jay Chelf said students were chosen based on several factors from grades to diversity.

North High teachers who meet specified qualifications for the program will teach the Scott Community College courses to the students. Students will start off taking two classes their freshman year. Then they will add more courses to their schedule year by year.

At the end of their high school career, they should have completed 62 college credit hours and will receive their associates degree from SCC.

Students who do not complete the program will not be penalized, according to program officials, and they will be able to keep the credits they earned.

For any families interested in the program - North High said it just started taking applications from eighth grade students for next year.
