Teacher Academy II and William Carey University School of Education: Dual Enrollment
In the 2019-20 academic year, Lawrence County Technology and Career Center’s Teacher Academy piloted the William Carey University School of Education Dual Credit Program, and students have been offered the same opportunity for the 2020-21 academic year.
Teacher Academy II students are able to take two courses earning six hours of credit through the School of Education – Foundations of Education and Technology in Education. Because these are dual credit classes, students can earn these credit hours at a fraction of the cost.
Students who take advantage of this opportunity are also able to count these as weighted classes for Teacher Academy. William Carey University School of Education has been an asset to LCTCC Teacher Academy students and has given them a head start on pursuing a career in education. They also offer any completer of Teacher Academy a $20,000 scholarship. Teacher Academy appreciates this partnership that not only helps the program, but also Lawrence County School District and the state of Mississippi, in encouraging a career in education.
