Earning College Credits
It is common for some of our high school students to be "dual-enrolled" in courses at Monterey Peninsula College (MPC). In 2015/16, Chartwell students at MPC are studying American Sign Language and math (pre-calculus). Experience taking College courses is a major confidence booster for our students. This bridging experience prepares them for college level work, it looks good on college applications, and it gives them college credit. These credits can be very important as it allows students to avoid over-loading themselves as college freshmen.
