Dual Credit at Home gives high schoolers the opportunity to earn both high school and college credits at the same time!
Our daily Study Plans guide students in taking accredited exams for college credit. High school credit is also awarded by parents for the teen’s study of the subject.
The program consists of weekly emails that contain two PDF downloads – a weekly Study Plan and the week’s optional Extra-Mile Assignments. The Study Plans are the lesson plans Becky Muldrow used with her teens who have earned their accredited bachelor’s degrees during high school. She put the lesson plans into an easy-to-follow format (called “Study Plans”) in response to so many requests by parents wanting a written plan to follow.

Why Charter Oak State College? Charter Oak State College is a regionally accredited institution that allows students to self-study and use accredited college-level exams to earn up to 114 credits of the necessary 120 credits for a BA or BS degree! This is how a student can accelerate their degree while saving a significant amount of money. Many of these exams also transfer to other accredited colleges and universities for students who choose an on-campus route to a degree.
The Study Plans are the actual daily lesson plans that your student will follow as they study 13 subjects and prepare to take the corresponding CLEP or DSST exam. The Extra-Mile Assignments are an optional part of the program. While the Study Plans are purely academic, this part of the program deals more with developing their character and personal growth. These assignments add about 30-45 minutes per day to school time and include a book list, following a couple of blogs of your choice, keeping up with current world events, etc.
