Thanks to our partnership with Weatherford College, WHS Career and Technical Education is able to offer Technical Dual Credit for several courses in our department. Technical Dual Credit provides students the opportunity to earn high school credit as well as college credit towards a Weatherford College certificate. Most of these certificates can help students acquire jobs after high school or even while they go to college and have valuable curriculum that may help them in relevant future careers. These credits do not transfer to a university, however they do show up on the college transcript from Weatherford College.
