Upper School – Dual Enrollment Financial Policy
Although Central Christian School strongly encourages and supports students who participate in Moving on When Ready (MOWR)/dual enrollment courses, our school cannot offer discounted tuition for students taking MOWR/dual enrollment courses. Our school must pay for full time teachers to teach the courses MOWR students take at Central. That requires full tuition to pay those salaries. Even though we are a non-profit organization, our school has an operating budget that will not allow us to give discounts.
In addition, students taking dual enrollment courses are able to do so because they are enrolled at an accredited school like Central Christian. If a student takes a college course on their own (not enrolled at Central) they would pay $1,076 for a regular three hour/credit course (using University of West Georgia figures) plus the cost of books. That is the equivalent of one college course and one course at Central. If that course had a lab it would cost almost $300 more. Most students take several MOWR courses from their college of choice. If taken independently, the tuition, fees, and cost of books quickly approach and surpass the cost for tuition at Central when students are taking multiple college courses. If taken as a Central student, the cost is covered because of their enrollment at Central.
