College Dual Enrollment
Homeschool students may participate in college dual enrollment, specifically at Grand Rapids Community College (GRCC), taking eligible courses either traditionally, or online with GRCC. JIA will pay a capped amount allotted by the State of Michigan, as long as the student fulfills the dual enrollment requirements and is enrolled in a minimum of one (1) Community Partner or Online Course with JIA. Students must successfully complete any dual enrolled course in order for the district to contribute to tuition. All costs and fees that exceed the capped amount are the responsibility of the student/family. Contact our offices to learn more about this opportunity.
