The CSI Dual Credit General Education Academy focuses on providing Dual Credit students a purposeful general education pathway, while introducing students to honors and Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) courses. The Academy is structured, by design, to provide Dual Credit students college courses at the CSI Twin Falls campus in the mornings and return to high school in the afternoon throughout a two-year time commitment. At the conclusion of the Academy, students will be eligible to successfully apply for the CSI Academic Certificate and seamlessly continue their associate’s degree at CSI after high school.
The Academy is comprised of two summer and four semester terms, and is built with the following courses to be completed by the student:

Students will be required to pay for digital textbooks and supplies on their own.
