HSLDA: Earn College Credit in High School

Dear students,

Greetings from the Patrick Henry College Office of Admissions! As you
are planning your classes for the upcoming school year, we encourage
you to consider dual enrollment through PHC's Distance Learning
program. Through our online classes, high school juniors and seniors
can take the same classes that Patrick Henry freshmen take their first
year on campus and earn both high school and college credit.

Here are a few advantages of PHC online:

1. Gain experience with academically rigorous classes. Our distance
learning courses are equally as challenging as our on-campus courses.
You will learn the subject matter well -- and learn how a biblical
worldview undergirds and informs our understanding of every subject.
The experience will serve you well wherever you go after high school.

2. Make yourself a stronger candidate for admission. If you intend to
apply for admission to Patrick Henry College, we strongly recommend
taking distance learning courses in high school. The Admissions Review
Committee looks very favorably on students who have a demonstrated
track record of success in PHC classes!

3. Earn your humanities credits from a Christian worldview. Students
intending to major in fields PHC doesn't offer can benefit from our
core liberal arts curriculum by transferring credits to another
institution. You would want to make sure the credits will transfer to
the specific school(s) you are considering, but many students find it
invaluable to learn philosophy, history, and literature from a
Christian perspective.

4. Save money. Distance learning is significantly cheaper than
on-campus tuition. Many families find that our Distance Learning
program makes college much more affordable.

For the list of available classes and full details about the program,
please visit www.phc.edu/distancelearning. We will continue to accept
and review applications until the first day of class (August 25th),
but will waive the application fee for those who apply at least two
weeks before then.

Note also that anyone who has already graduated high school is welcome
to apply. Our Distance Learning courses are open to college students
hoping to transfer to another institution or to adult learners.

Please feel free to e-mail me at dpburns@phc.edu or call
1-888-338-1776 any time you have questions. I hope to hear from you
soon!

For Christ and for liberty,

Daniel Burns
