Get the EDGE and Get Ahead in Your College Education!
Liberty University Online Academy, in partnership with Liberty University Online, offers a Dual-Enrollment program specifically designed for high school juniors and seniors who want to earn college credit while still in high school. The more classes you take in the EDGE program, the further ahead you will be — at Liberty University, Liberty University Online or any other college or university of your choice! Each EDGE course earns half a credit toward your High School diploma and three credits toward your college degree.
The EDGE program offers two options for those looking to earn college credit.
In our "A La Carte" Option students in grades 11 and 12 can take select courses at their choosing to begin earning college credit while fulfilling high school course requirements.

For those considering enrollment into the EDGE Associate program, please note that this program begins the summer following a student’s 10th grade year. Please see the EDGE Associate of Arts Course Sequence to ensure that all prerequisites have been met prior to enrollment. For students who will be Juniors in the 2014/2015 school year, applications MUST be submitted by April 10th, 2015 in order to be considered for enrollment into the EDGE Associate program. Please note that enrollment in dual credit courses after this date will need to first meet our High School graduation requirements and may not satisfy the total number of credits needed to earn the AA degree.
