For Kyle Bigley, PCC’s concurrent enrollment program for high school students offers a way for him to earn college credit while still taking part in his high school activities.
Kyle attends Central High School in Pueblo and is a forward on the varsity basketball team. He’s enrolled in PCC’s Physical Therapist Assistant program with hopes of earning both his associate degree and high school diploma in 2022.
“I decided to take part in concurrent enrollment because I thought it was interesting to be able to leave high school with some sort of college degree,” he said. “It seemed like a great way to get a head start on my college career.”
He also appreciates the independence that PCC offers.
“I like the freedom of taking classes at PCC. There is a ton of variety and it’s interesting to see the different options. I feel like taking college classes now will prepare me better in the future. It’s made me realize the importance of studying more diligently.”
