Jump Start

Take college classes while you're still in high school and get high school and college credit.


Jump Start is a Southeastern Community College program through which high school students can earn college credits while still in high school.

What classes can I take?

You can take all kinds of college classes from anatomy to welding and everything in between. Whether you're aiming for a B.A. at a four-year college or a two-year program right here at SCC, we've got what you need.

Some classes are offered at SCC, some online, and others are right at your high school.

Not all high schools in our area offer the same college-level classes. Talk to your high school guidance counselor for the complete scoop.  If you're ready to enroll in a Jump Start class and have everything you need from your high school guidance counselor, fill out the Jump Start application.

After one semester at SCC, I loved it. It had the perfect ratio of students to teachers. They spend time getting to know you as a person.
