Free College through ASCENT

ALL students in DPS, including JFK, have access to take FREE college classes while in high school. Some JFK seniors have earned as many as 24 college credits by the time they graduate! The ASCENT program can then provide an additional year of free college after the 4th year of high school. That could be an entire Associates Degree for FREE!! Others use ASCENT or concurrent enrollment to earn a career certification at Emily Griffith Technical College, in such programs as cosmetology, nursing, and dental assisting, to name just a few. Contact your counselor with questions on how you can take advantage of concurrent enrollment and ASCENT!
