effective co-management by DVU and CPS

degree. With this experience under their belts,
their fear of college is gone.”

College Complete
Students in the class of 2017 are eligible to earn an Associate of Science
degree with a STEM concentration and graduate from Waubonsee Community
College 2 weeks prior to graduation from West. The courses are offered
entirely at West Aurora High School and no tuition is charged to families.
Currently, students can complete the following career certificates: Firefighter
Certificate of Achievement (20 hours), Phlebotomy Technician (9 hours), EMT (9
hours), and CNA (7 hours) prior to high school graduation.
Additional completion programs will be available as we move
forward. By establishing a developmental education
foundation combined with a full general education course
sequence, West can now examine areas of concentration that
are optimal for our students and community.
Together we can build a smooth transition from high school to
an educated and employable future for our students.
West Aurora High School
Forward Focus
West Aurora High School is a 9-12 school offering a 9-14 education. We truly
believe that “Every Blackhawk can be a Chief” during their high school years.
West intentionally hires teachers with content area master’s degrees in order to
increase the courses offered. Waubonsee waives tuition for all courses taught
by qualified high school faculty.
During the 2012-13 school year, 610 students enrolled in 1117 courses for 3,630
credit hours. This represents an actual tuition savings of $352,110 at the
Waubonsee 2012 tuition rate of $97 per credit hour. For 2013-14, enrollment is
on pace to double as increasing numbers of students find success in early
college courses.
