On Site Dual Enrollment, Soccer, & Cross Country

On-Site Dual Enrollment
In partnership with the Middlesex Dual Enrollment Academy, a division of Middlesex Community College, we are proud to offer qualified high school students the opportunity to earn college credit while satisfying their high school graduation requirements.  This exciting program will give students an opportunity to get a head start on completing general education courses required by most colleges and universities at a fraction of the cost. 

In the spring we will offer a college level Introduction to Engineering course (offered in the evening), along with English Composition 101 (AP Language & Composition) which is offered during the school day. Both courses will be taught by MCC instructors and offered in our own classrooms here at GDRHS.

Credits earned in both classes are transferable college credits, acceptable at most colleges and universities.  Notably, after successfully completing a course with a 2.0 or better students are guaranteed a transfer of credits at a Massachusetts state university or University of Massachusetts campus as part of the MassTransfer program. Follow this link for additional information: MassTransfer benefits.

Program Highlights
  • All courses come complete with access to Blackboard, a digital learning interface used by colleges and universities worldwide
  • Guaranteed a transfer of credit at a Massachusetts State University or University of Massachusetts campus.
  • Students can participate in all MCC activities and events.
  • Students can use all MCC facilities including the gymnasiums and libraries at both the Bedford and the Lowell campuses.


Tuition is $261 per course ($87 per credit).  There may be additional charges for textbooks and other course materials.
