Dual Enrollment

Dual Enrollment gives high school students the chance to take college courses for college credit while also meeting high school gradation requirements. Students at Toombs County High School can choose to dual enroll through Southeastern Technical College or East Georgia and have the opportunity to take several courses at the high school. Students can also choose to dual enroll through other local colleges and take courses on that college campus.
