Stanly Community College believes that students currently enrolled in secondary education should have potential pathways to obtain college credits as they work to complete their secondary credential. Pathways currently available at Stanly Community College for students interested in this goal include Stanly Early College and the Career and College Promise Program. The Career and College Promise Program has replaced all other previously used programs for dual enrollment.
