“I think the dual enrollment program is a great way to combine education with the college experience, and I would highly recommend it,” she said. “KSU is right by our house, so we had very easy access to it. The reason I knew about it is my sister had done it previously, so it was kind of a family tradition, almost.”
In fact, she recommended the program to her younger sister, Emily Haynes, who is currently dual enrolled at Kennesaw State. Both sisters were home-schooled in Kennesaw and were the third and fourth Haynes children to dual enroll at KSU.
“It’s always been a thing for us,” said Emily Haynes, 16, who will be completing high school as a college sophomore with more than 30 credit hours under her belt.
Kennesaw State’s dual enrollment program has been around for about 30 years, according to Katherine Kinnick, the director of the Dual Enrollment Honors Program at KSU.
