Advance College Academy
Home Schooled Students
The Dual Enrollment Program is offered to high school juniors and seniors enrolled in one of the local participating schools. This program allows students to take college-level courses that fulfill both high school and college graduation requirements.
As part of the Virginia Plan for Dual Enrollment and the Commonwealth College Course Collaborative Program (CCCC), the Dual Enrollment Program at J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College provides an opportunity for high school students to get a head-start on college graduation.
Students who enroll in this program take college-level courses at their local high school/technical center or at one of our campuses with special permission from the Principal or School Counselor. Upon completion of these courses, students will receive credits that count toward their high school diploma as well as earn credits toward a degree at J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College or to transfer to a 4 year institution. This program enables students to get a jump on completing their college degree by making the most of their time in high school while helping to reduce expenses related to the college experience. All college-level courses are taught by faculty who meet SACS certification or eligibility.
Who can enroll?
Enrollment in this program is offered to high school juniors and seniors enrolled in a participating area high school. Currently, J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College has agreements to offer the Dual Enrollment program with the following schools or school systems: CATEC, Goochland County, Hanover County, Henrico County, Louisa County, Powhatan County, and Richmond City.
How do I enroll?
The first step is to meet with your school counselor to discuss your dual enrollment options. Students must complete the J. S Reynolds Community College online application. They must then submit two additional forms, the Dual Enrollment Course Request form and a Residency form. These forms can be found here:

What happens next?
Once the application has been processed, students will receive a Student ID number that will allow them to take the placement tests. All students must take a placement test and meet minimum ability to benefit levels in order to take any dual enrollment course. Higher placement scores are expected for students who wish to place into English, Math, Science and Social Studies courses. The COMPASS may be taken at any of the JSRCC Testing centers on a walk in basis. Placement testing may be waived based upon previously taken tests (i.e. SATs, PSATs, and ACTs). Additionally, students need to review the current course catalog to verify that they meet the prerequisites for the desired course. Upon fulfilling the testing and prerequisites, students will be enrolled in selected classes by submitting their course request forms to their high school by the appropriate deadline.
