  • Concurrent Enrollment Process

There are many benefits to taking community college courses while in high school (see the infographic below). Please remember that taking a college course also starts your college transcript, so only consider taking community college courses if you are ready.

Remember that Inspire offices we will be closed from December 16th - January 3rd. If you are already planning on taking a community college course, make sure to submit the concurrent enrollment form to your high school counselor before Thursday, December 12th.

High School Info Session

Our amazing High School Liaison, Amy Edwards, recently hosted an online High School Info Session. If you have any questions about what High School looks like with Inspire, this is a great resource!
