October 17 - At Mexico High School, 113 students are enrolled in 795 college credit hours. Through a partnership with Moberly Area Community College (MACC), students will receive college credit for courses taken in their daily high school schedule. Some classes are by semester, and others are a full-year course.

Currently, 11 classes are offered online through MACC. Nine dual credit classes are offered in person at Mexico High: American Literature, Composition, Medical Terminology, Anatomy, Biology, Conservation Biology, Physics, Public Speaking, and American History.

Students interested in the in-person option take the class with Jennifer Silver, Michelle Yount, Sara Given, Liz Seal, or Tony Senor. 

Dual credit courses are offered to sophomores, juniors, and seniors who meet the requirements for the specific course. Students may also enroll with special permissions with grade point averages as low as 2.5. Students may also apply for financial help for the dual credit courses through the Bright Futures Mexico Clearing the Path scholarships. These monies are awarded based on student need and distributed from local funding sources.
