Welch College and HomeLife Academy have completed a dual enrollment agreement that will speed the admissions process for HLA students who want to enroll at Welch for college credit under the Tennessee Dual Enrollment Grant program, according to Dr. Greg Ketteman, Vice President for Strategic Initiatives at Welch.

The Dual Enrollment Grant, funded through the state’s Tennessee Promise initiative, makes it possible for Tennessee HLA students to take up to twelve hours of college credit while completing their junior and senior years of high school. “Tennessee’s Dual Enrollment Grant, combined with Welch College’s special tuition rate for DE students, makes it possible for HLA students to take the first six hours at no out-of-pocket cost and the next six hours at very low cost,” Ketteman said.

HomeLife Academy’s Director of Academics and Counseling, Mrs. Lynn Knowlton, said, “We are pleased to partner with Welch College to make it easier for HLA students to earn college credit at a Christian college.”

Welch College is a four-year, residential college in Gallatin, Tennessee, that offers over 40 majors. The college is accredited regionally by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools and is ranked among top regional colleges by US News and World Report. That same publication also ranked Welch College among the top-ten best higher educational values in the state of Tennessee.

HomeLife Academy is a non-traditional K-12 private “umbrella” school and ministry that has served thousands of homeschoolers over the last fifteen years. The vision and mission of HomeLife Academy, a member of the Association of Christian Schools International, is, “We believe that God gives every child unique and wonderful gifts to use for His glory and honor. Our mission is to inspire and equip parents to help develop those gifts.”
