Thorsby Junior/Senior High School
Dual Credit Opportunities-
BGSD offers a Dual Credit program which provides an exciting opportunity to BGSD high school students. Students can earn college/university credits from a post-secondary institution and high school credits from their school by completing college-level courses. All tuition fees are paid by BGSD. We are partnered with five post-secondary institutions to offer over 40 different courses this year. Spots are still available and for more information check out the Dual Credit Handbook.
Additionally Black Gold has the opportunity to bring the Northern Lakes College Mobile Trades Lab (MTL) to the Division for the 2022-2023 school year. Students in the program complete 16 weeks of in-person trades training (both hands-on and classroom) and earn approximately 24 high school credits. Upon completion of the program, students are also able to challenge the Apprenticeship and Industry Training (AIT) first period exam, giving them an accelerated pathway to a great career in the trades.
As this is part of the Dual Credit program, there is no cost to students, saving them around $2500 in tuition fees. To see the MTL in action, check out the following video!
