Dual Credit

Daviess County Public Schools is home to the largest dual credit program in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. 

Our partnership with the Kentucky Community and Technical College System opens doors and allows opportunities for our students. Through our close relationship with local colleges, our students are able to obtain college credit during the regular school day. 


Students pay a reduced tuition rate and receive benefits of dual enrollment at Apollo High School or Daviess County High School and the partner college.  We are focused on creating a strong academic experience that is individually tailored to meet the needs of our students, our community and the local workforce. 


By expanding our academic offerings, we are creating pathways for students to reach their goals after high school. Whether they are attending a four-year university, pursuing a technical certificate, or obtaining a two-year degree, dual credit students will be equipped with strong academic skills.

Due to the recent decision by Governor Beshear, the Daviess County Public School system will be moving to an all virtual framework. As a result, DCPS will not be able to operate busses to accommodate our OCTC dual credit students. This will be in effect at least until Oct. 12. 


We encourage you to consult your student’s schedule on MyPath to see if their course at the college will be meeting in person or not. At this time, OCTC has stated that about 75 percent of their courses will be totally virtual.


If your student’s class is still meeting in person and the lack of bus transportation restricts your student’s ability to participate in their dual credit classes, please contact us and we will request the course drop from the college. Write to
