One of the many benefits students gain from our partnership with Pacific Lutheran University (PLU) is the opportunity to take college courses on their campus.  Although dual credit opportunities exist for Concordia Christian Academy students with other universities, Lute Academy is unique in that students actually go to the physical classroom of the college course they take at PLU.  Such an experience gives them the opportunity to get a very real taste of what college classes will be like.

Here are some benefits of dual enrollment with PLU through Lute Academy:

5-10 courses available each semester
Tuition:  $250 per credit fee billed through Concordia Christian Academy + book expense
Students may enroll in a total of nine (9) credits over two years  (One class in junior and senior years plus one Physical Education class)
