Lynnhaven School partners with Marymount University (Arlington, VA) to offer a Dual Enrollment Program.
(Henrico, VA) Lynnhaven School announced a partnership with Marymount University (Arlington,VA) to offer a Dual Enrollment program that will launch this fall. This is a first of its kind in the Richmond area.
“This unique opportunity with Marymount University further extends our mission of providing opportunities for students to pursue successes,” said Johnathan Harris, founder, and Co-Head of School at Lynnhaven. “ It’s not common for four-year institutions to partner with high schools in this manner. Our students will have an opportunity to earn college credit from a very reputable four-year university. I believe that Marymount values its students and understands that education is a social and relationship-driven experience, which is parallel to the ethos of Lynnhaven. This is a value-added benefit we are giving our students.”
Lynnhaven students have an opportunity to earn as many as 24 college credits upon graduating. “As a former dual-enrollment student in high school, it was formative in building my confidence in my ability to do college-level work,” said Casey Hitchcock, Co-Head of School at Lynnhaven School. “Our students are poised to have a competitive edge when they apply for college. To graduate high school with Marymount University credits is an incredible opportunity.”
Lynnhaven will begin offering four courses this fall, with plans to expand the program in subsequent years.
