High School and Homeschool Programs
Earn college credit while you’re in high school through specialized enrichment programs from John Tyler:
Concurrently enrolled students take regular college-level courses taught at John Tyler Community College’s Chester or Midlothian Campus in addition to taking courses at their local high school or through home-schooling. Students earn college credit for their coursework.
Dual Enrollment courses are John Tyler courses that are offered in local high schools. Students earn college credit, as well as credit for the course at their high school.
Tyler Early College Academy (TECA) is a pilot program in Hopewell and Petersburg. TECA is a rigorous four-year academic program that allows students to pursue college coursework leading to an associate’s degree, certificate or workforce credential at the same time as completing high school graduation requirements.
The UpGrade program allows students to follow a course pathway that leads to a college certificate, associate degree, and/or workforce credential. Credit can be earned through a combination of dual enrollment, concurrent enrollment, International Baccalaureate (IB) or Advanced Placement (AP) courses/tests. Pathways vary by high school.
