Ky. College sees surge in dual enrollment.

PADUCAH, Ky. (AP) -- The first class of Commonwealth Middle College is approaching graduation at the end of this semester from the cooperative program in which students take high school and college courses at the same time.

In fact, Middle College principal Donna Wear told The Paducah Sun that four of those graduating this year will receive not only a high school diploma but also an associate degree.

Wear is enthusiastic about the college's success, which shows in the fact that applications to enter the program at West Kentucky Community & Technical College in Paducah have more than doubled.

Middle College is a cooperative program with support from WKCTC as well as McCracken County and Marshall County schools. Students take both high school and college courses five days a week at the WKCTC campus in Paducah. Wear says they can earn up to 36 credits toward a college degree, or more if they pay extra.
