Lapeer Community Schools in collaboration with the University of Michigan-Flint will offer students the Humanities Program.
Schedule of Dual Enrollment Classes
DEEP courses are taught on a Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday schedule each week.
Academic tutoring is provided for students in Friday tutorial sessions during which attendance is expected.
DEEP courses are taught during the regular high school academic day, approximately 12:30-1:45PM providing students with time to participate in after-school activities.
DEEP courses generally follow the UM-Flint academic calendar; in the Winter semester, classes are generally not held during the spring break period for Lapeer High School.
