Dual Degree Program with McHenry County College

  •  D200 Dual Degree Program logo





    The Dual Degree Program is an early college program that was created through a collaborative partnership between McHenry County College (MCC) and Woodstock Community Unit School District 200.  The program provides academically motivated students enrolled in District 200 an opportunity to earn a high school diploma and an Associate of Arts degree simultaneously. During their four years of school, students will take a combination of Dual Credit courses offered through District 200 at each high school, and MCC courses offered at the McHenry County College campus.

    Students apply and are selected for this program during the 1st semester of 9th grade.  To learn more about this fantastic opportunity, please attend the informational meeting as posted below.

    For families unable to attend on Dec. 6,  a second meeting will be held on Dec. 7 from 7:00-8:00 p.m. in the Woodstock High School Library.
