Early College Programs
Accelerated High School Students
Take a “step ahead” to advance your college career while still in high school! (This program is available to qualified high school students who are enrolled in private schools, home schools, and public schools.) At Faulkner State Community College you can take that step by enrolling in our Accelerated High School Student Program. This program allows you to receive college credit for courses taken at one of the three Faulkner State campuses (Bay Minette, Fairhope, or Gulf Shores) of Faulkner State while you are still in high school. Academic courses are transferable to other colleges or universities. Eligible high school students can take any college course for which they meet the prerequisites. (For example, students who want to take English Composition II – ENG 102 must have taken English Composition I – ENG 101 first.) Many high school students have already enrolled and found the program beneficial to getting a head start on college.
