Dublin High School Students Start College Early at OFTC | Schools
DUBLIN, GA - Four students from Dublin High School are making the most of their time in high school with Oconee Fall Line Technical College’s (OFTC) dual enrollment program – earning both high school and college credit at the same time.
Shikira Willis is working on a Nurse Aid Technical Certificate of Credit (TCC), preparing Shikira with classroom training and practice as well as the clinical experiences necessary to care for patients in various settings.
Alyssa Payne, Francisca Sanchez, and Jasmine Lewis are working on a Cosmetology Diploma, preparing them for careers in the field of cosmetology.
“OFTC’s dual enrollment program is a great way for students interested in a career to give it a try,” said Robbie Hobbs, a High School Coordinator for OFTC. “And when they are done, they have a skill that is job ready. They can move into that career after high school, use their new skill for part-time work during college, or continue in the field toward an advanced degree or other credentials.”
Any high school students that are interested in the Dual Enrollment program at OFTC are encouraged to contact their high school guidance counselor or call Robbie Hobbs, OFTC’s High School Coordinator, at 478-274-7765 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students may also visit www.OFTC.edu and follow the high school link to learn more about dual enrollment. Courses may be taken during school hours or in the evening. OFTC is currently taking applications for eligible high school students for Fall Semester 2013.
