Today the Lincoln University community officially welcomed some of its newest — and youngest — members during the Spring 2016 orientation for the Coatesville Area Senior High School dual enrollment program.

Lincoln University offers a dual enrollment program at Coatesville Area Senior High School where students earn college credit by taking classes at the high school during regular school hours with high school teachers. 

Marion Bernard-Amos, director of Title III and director of the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs, worked with Don Davis, Coatesville Senior High School guidance counselor and dual enrollment liaison, to create the program last year.

“This is an excellent program for scaling up high school experience while creating opportunities for student advance to college," Amos said.

The following courses are currently offered: English Composition for six credits, African American History for six credits, Pre-calculus for six credits and Biology II for eight credits.

During the orientation, the high school students visited Lincoln's Coatesville location to have their photo taken for their college IDs. They listened to an overview about the Langston Hughes Memorial Library's research databases and library resources and learned how to access Web Advisor. They also heard from several academic department representatives. 

“We’re excited about the possibility this provides for our students,” said Don Davis, high school guidance counselor.  “Next year we hope to expand the number of students participating and the number of courses offered.”
