Lindbergh High School Students Earn STLCC Dual Credit, Enrollment Honors

May 21, 2024

Lindbergh Schools has been recognized by St. Louis Community College for leading the area in student participation in its dual credit and dual enrollment programs during the 2023-24 school year.

Lindbergh Schools partners with STLCC to provide students the opportunity to receive college credit as high school students. This takes place through the Dual Credit program, where students earn college credit for classes taught by high school instructors, and Dual Enrollment, where students earn college credit by attending classes at STLCC-Meramec. The partnership allows students to save money on college tuition, and the program continues to grow.

During the May 2024 regular Board of Education meeting, Lindbergh Schools earned Certificates of Recognition from STLCC as the top school district in the following categories:

  • Most Dual Credit Students 2023-2024

  • Most Money Saved Overall 2023-2024

In addition, Lindbergh Schools was nominated for honors in the following categories:

  • Highest Increase in Dual Credit Section Offerings

  • Highest Average Savings Per Dual Credit Student

Overall, 513 Lindbergh High School students were enrolled in at least one dual credit class at the high school during the 2023-24 school year, and 57 students were enrolled in the Dual Enrollment Early College program. Students collectively saved $1,999,919.50 in college tuition costs, compared to the cost of credit hours at public colleges or universities in Missouri. They also earned a total of 5,510 dual credit hours. 

“Our partnership with the STLCC dual credit and dual enrollment programs allows students who are already doing rigorous, college-level learning to also get a jumpstart on a college degree and save thousands of dollars in college tuition,” said Dr. Ronni Zagora, Executive Director of Secondary Education. “We are delighted to see incredible growth this year. These numbers are the result of a strong commitment from both LHS students and teachers to push themselves beyond traditional high school coursework to prepare for students’ post-secondary pathways.”

LHS offered 16 courses in the dual credit program for the 2023-24 school year, including business, English, mathematics, science, history and political science.
