Huntley High School presents our Dual Degree program in partnership with McHenry County College, which offers current Huntley 158 students the opportunity to earn an Associate of Arts degree concurrently with their high school diploma. This program provides an additional path for our students to advance their college and career goals in a meaningful, cost-effective way.
The course of study that qualifying students would enter into at the end of their sophomore year. A course sequence includes a combination of
- HHS internal courses
- Dual Credit courses taught at HHS that receive MCC credit
- Optional qualifying AP courses
- Credit-bearing MCC courses taught through MCC
To the greatest extent possible, this course of study will offer a flexible sequence that would allow students to complete an Associate of Arts degree from McHenry County College at the same time as they complete all HHS graduation requirements.
