I am writing to inform you of two new changes that need your attention. ABAC has extended the withdrawal without penalty date, and admission requirements for dual enrollment students have been changed temporarily.
Withdraw Date Extended
Because of the switch to online learning, ABAC is pushing back its withdrawal without penalty date to April 9th.
If DE students want to withdraw from a class and receive a W on their transcript, have them complete the form on this link.
click on the last link listed as "course withdrawal form"
I have sent an email to all DE students telling them to discuss withdrawal with their guidance counselor before filling out the form.
Admission Requirements Change for Summer and Fall
Because the College Board cannot guarantee any testing will be up and running soon, the testing requirements for DE students has been temporarily set aside.
No testing will be required until Spring 2021
Students will need a 3.0 GPA on their high school general ed. courses .

What is Dual Enrollment?
Dual Enrollment provides high school students with the opportunity to take college-level courses and earn credit toward both a high school diploma and a college degree.
- Available for all high school grade levels 10-12
- Once approved, may enroll full or part-time in approved credit-bearing college courses
- Courses may be taken before, during, or after regular school hours on the college campus, online, or at WCHS
- No charge for tuition, mandatory fees, and required books, providing a huge cost savings for parents and students. Exceptions may be lab fees.
Advantages and Benefits
- Provides students with an easy transition and an early start to their college careers
- Earning college credits while still in high school may enable students to graduate early and/or possibly even earn an associate degree, diploma or certificate
- Helps students adjust to certain aspects of the college experience (e.g., classes, coursework, instruction, being on a college campus) so the transition from high school to college may be easier
- Flexible scheduling opportunities with classes and access to the college’s resources and amenities
- College tuition and expenses are fully or mostly paid, which saves the parents/students money and time
- Participating in a dual enrollment program demonstrates a student’s ability to handle more difficult coursework which is something college admissions officers may look upon favorably during admissions and recruiting
