The MACA Administration is pleased to announce the opening of MACA Next Step, a dual-enrollment program that provides college courses to high school students on the MACA campus. Beginning with the 2016-17 school year, MACA students will now be able to complete 18 hours of college coursework during their senior year. Course instructors are approved Adjunct Professors through Lancaster Bible College (LBC). Because LBC is accredited by both the Middle States Commission on Higher Education and The Association for Biblical Higher Education Commission on Accreditation, students who complete MACA Next Step courses will be able to transfer them to two and four year colleges of their choice. Through MACA Next Step, students will be able to start their college transcripts while they finish requirements for their high school diploma.
“We are interested in providing our students with every opportunity to remain competitive as they enter college,” stated Vicky Webster, Head of School. “Our quality faculty and our strong relationship with LBC allows us to offer our students more. This new program makes College-level courses available to our students right on our campus taught by Christian instructors. We are very pleased to be able to provide this new program to our MACA family.”
Students will be able to choose from College English Composition, Hermeneutics and Old Testament 1 for the fall semester as well as College History, Public Speaking and Old Testament 2 for the spring semester. The cost of this program for MACA students will only be an additional $200 per class to cover the Dual Enrollment Fee from LBC. “We want to make these courses available to our high school students, but we recognize we must do so while ensuring the courses are affordable for our families. We have worked closely with LBC to ensure that we can do that,” Webster said.
