What is Dual Credit?
There are a number of Dual Credit opportunities available to students in the Limestone District School Board each semester.
These courses are provided at St. Lawrence College in Kingston.
A variety of courses in disciplines such as early childhood education, police foundations, graphic design, culinary arts and business, and trades are among the possibilities.
