BEEHIVE SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY ACADEMY STUDENTS

CAN EARN COLLEGE CREDIT THROUGH SCHOOL’S

CONCURRENT ENROLLMENT PROGRAM

 

Sandy—Beehive Science & Technology Academy students can now earn credits toward a college degree through the charter school’s Concurrent Enrollment program.  The program is offered in conjunction with Salt Lake Community College.

     According to Beehive’s Art Specialist Carelene Walloch, “The purpose of Concurrent Enrollment classes is to help students get their feet wet and raise the chance they will be successful when they are a college student.  Some kind of art class is required as a general education course in college, so by taking my class [Drawing 2010], they get one college class finished before they even graduate from high school.”

     In addition to being a full-time teacher at Beehive, Walloch is an adjunct teacher at Salt Lake Community College.  Beehive’s math teacher, Emre Gul, also has adjunct teacher status with Salt Lake Community College, and is currently teaching Math 1030, Quantitative Reasoning, as part of the Concurrent Enrollment program. 

     Walloch said, “A high school teacher can become an adjunct or Concurrent Enrollment teacher if they have the qualifications to teach at that level.  In reality, Concurrent Enrollment classes are college classes.  Therefore, they’re graded and credited the same as a college class.”

     Walloch added that there is an enrollment fee to sign up to be a student of Salt Lake Community College.  Any college or university that accepts Salt Lake Community College credits, including the University of Utah, will accept the classes taught by Walloch and Gul.

     In conjunction with the Concurrent Enrollment program, Salt Lake Community College will be holding a High School Workshop Day on Nov. 9, 2018 from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.  On this day, high school students are invited to visit Salt Lake Community College’s campus at 1575 S. State St. and participate in arts and media workshops led by the college’s faculty.  Twenty-one students from Beehive have signed up to participate in the workshop day.  Students do not need to be enrolled in a Concurrent Enrollment class to participate in the High School Workshop day.  To learn more, visit slcc.edu/arts-comm/workshop-day.aspx.
