Programs for High School Students

Missoula College offers options to help students prepare for college or to earn college credits while still in high school. Those options include Big Sky Pathways and Dual Enrollment coursework. This website will help students, parents, high school teachers and college faculty learn more about those options.

Big Sky Pathways are agreements between high schools and two-year colleges that align coursework assuring that classes you take in high school lead to programs of study in college.

Dual enrollment is the broad term for various types of opportunities for high school students to take college coursework while they are enrolled in high school.
