John Hertlein
John Hertlein, Silver Creek High School Principal, shares his enthusiasm for the 3-1-3 program during the 2010 information meeting.

There are a variety of reasons students participate in 3-1-3: to get ahead in college credit, to experience college academic life and experience a challenge. The best thing you can do is to speak with students from your school who are currently participating.

Some families are eligible for income tax credits for educational expenses.  See a professional tax accountant for information.

Each year the 3-1-3 Program surveys the previous class to take a look at the schools students transferred to and how the 3-1-3 experience may have impacted their first year of full-time college.

What do I take?
The minimum number of credits students have to take in order to be in the program is six (6). Students generally take two courses in the fall and two courses in the spring. You can take more, but it depends on your high school schedule. Student schedule will depend on high school requirement, interest and seat availability in college courses. The fall semester runs from the end of August until the second or third week in December. The spring semester runs from the third week in January through the third week in May.
