My daughter is taking AP classes at Middle Creek but she is also dual enrolled and taking college courses at Wake Tech as well. Aren’t they both the same and if so, then why bother with dual enrollment? Well, believe it or not, I prefer the Wake Tech program over AP classes.
Career and College Promises (CCP) is a free program for qualified junior/senior high school students to accelerate the completion of college credentials. It has two paths you can take. If you are planning to attend Wake Tech after high school, then you can get an early start by following the Career and Technical Education Pathway. If you are planning to attend a four year college, then you can take the College Transfer Pathway. This pathway has set courses that are included in the Comprehensive Articulation Agreement with UNC member institutions.
So why do I prefer Wake Tech over AP classes? Keep reading and I’ll tell you why.
