Early College Programs

A wonderful opportunity for Ludlow students!

Ludlow High School offers eligible juniors and seniors to participate in the Early College and Technical Education programs through Gateway Community & Technical College.  Dual Credit classes are typically held on the college campuses; the course counts as both a high school credit AND a college credit.  Some courses may be offered online or at local high school sites as well.



Current Programs Offered:

  • General Education
  • Logistics/Supply Chain & Co-Op
  • Computer & Information Technology 
  • Allied Health 
  • Auto Technology
  • Advanced Manufacturing


Gateway’s Requirements for Students Taking General Education Courses:

  • Have a high school GPA of 3.0 or higher;
  • OR meet benchmark scores in Reading, English, and/or Math (through ACT, SAT, EdReady, Tabe A, or KYOTE);**
  • AND meet any course-specific prerequisites

Gateway’s Requirements for Students Taking Technical Education Courses:

  • Have a high school unweighted GPA of 2.0;
  • OR have an ACT Composite Score of 16;
  • OR have an ACT Math score of 16 AND an ACT Reading score of 16;**
  • OR have any accepted equivalent from the KCTCS Assessment and Placement Policy;
  • AND meet any course-specific prerequisites

Ludlow High School uses the above requirements in addition to reviewing the student’s attendance and behavior.

Students must provide their own transportation if the course is taken on the college campus.  The student’s Gateway ID serves as a TANK bus pass, which students can use to get back and forth from class.

See our FLYER of all Off-Campus Opportunities for LHS Juniors and Seniors.


Our local Board of Education, along with the help of local sponsors, graciously fund the cost of the tuition and books for these courses for LHS students.  THERE IS NO COST TO THE STUDENT/FAMILY.
