Earning College Credits from the Comfort of Your Own High School
Dual Credit is a program that allows our students to enroll in college courses for credit prior to high school graduation. Monsignor Kelly Catholic High School, in conjunction with Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas, works with us to provide these courses to our students on our campus. These credits are accepted at all schools within Texas, including private institutions, on a case-by-case basis.
The courses available for seniors are listed below and are taught on the Kelly campus by Lamar professors. Two classes are taken in the Fall and two in the Spring. The classes are taken as a group-no selecting only one or two. The classes may not be dropped and replaced by Kelly classes. Students are expected to be mature and responsible. Students must agree to adhere to all rules and regulations as required by Lamar University.
