Ky. College sees surge in dual enrollment.
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.
