Dual Enrollment


Dual enrollment is a program that allows high school students to simultaneously earn college credit that will also count as high school credit. Dual Enrollment courses offer an opportunity to take challenging courses and gain a jump start to a college education. Dual enrollment courses are full college courses given either on the college campus or taught by college faculty at an alternative site.

BCLA is collaborating with five colleges for dual enrollment;  Bunker Hill Community College, Fisher College, Suffolk University (new in 2019-2020), Benjamin Franklin Institue of Technology and Wentworth Institute of Technology.
