    The Higher Start Program 

    The Higher Start Program is part of the dual credit program.  Higher Start students complete 60 hours of college credit over their four years of high school in order to earn an AA or AS degree in General Studies from Navarro College by the completion of their senior year.  Higher Start students take the above listed dual credit courses, in addition to other courses advised by CHS and the Navarro College Dual Credit Advisors.  The Higher Start Program will end with the high school graduating class of 2023.  CHS is no longer accepting new students into the Higher Start program.

    Class Times and Professors

    Most dual credit classes meet in person on the high school campus as part of the regular high school day.  Classes are taught by credentialed Navarro College faculty that come to our campus.  Occasionally, a course may be taught online if a professor is not available for that semester.

     

    Tuition, Fees, and Access Codes

    CHS pays for approved dual credit course tuition and fees as well as books and access codes required for those courses.  Books issued will be checked out to students and must be returned at end of the semester or a fine will be charged.

    If a student drops or fails a course (69 and below is considered failing), he/she will be required to reimburse CHS for the tuition, fees, and access codes for that course.  Final high school transcripts will be held until reimbursements are made.
