Options for High Schoolers
Earn College Credits in High School – Get Started Early!
Reynolds Community College offers several ways for you to get started on your college career while you're still in high school. To take advantage of these sweet opportunities, students should begin preparing in middle school (or junior high):
• Take Algebra-I in middle school or take the highest math level you can.
• Take any other high school level classes offered at your middle school.
• Attend information sessions for these programs early.
• Talk to your school counseling office to discuss the options available at your high school.
Here's a snapshot of what Reynolds offers:
College Classes at Your High School
Juniors and seniors can take college-level classes at their high school that fulfill both high school and college requirements. Classes can transfer to a four-year college or prepare you for a career. Learn more about Dual Enrollment.
College Classes Online
Juniors and seniors can complete about a year's worth of college credits online.

College Classes at Reynolds
Juniors and seniors can take Reynolds classes online or on any campus. Unlike Dual Enrollment, these classes count only toward college credit and may be transferrable. Follow the Steps for Admission for Concurrent Enrollment.
Finish High School with a College Degree
Join a group of students who will earn a two-year associate degree and graduate high school at the same time. Ask your counselor if your high school offers a Reynolds Advance College Academy program or the Early College Academy.
Just for Goochland and Powhatan
Juniors and seniors at Goochland and Powhatan High Schools can earn a General Education Certificate (equivalent to a year's worth of college credit). Classes are offered at the high school or at the Reynolds Goochland Campus and fulfill both high school and college credit. See your high school counselor for more information.
