College Classes for High School Students

Looking for a way to get a Jump Start on college? Take a look at the courses we have available for high school students! We have two options for you to consider. On campus classes give you a taste of college life and the opportunity to interact personally with your professor and fellow students. Online classes through Emmaus Distance Learning provide more flexibility. You can study from your desk at home or your favorite coffee shop. Whatever option you choose, you will enjoy high-quality academics taught by experienced faculty from a Christ-centered, biblical perspective.
