Freed-Hardeman University and Hickman County Schools have entered a partnership whereby students at Hickman County High School and East Hickman High School can enroll in classes at FHU to meet both high school and college requirements. The first courses, English Composition I and American History I, will be offered this fall.
Additional courses will be offered in subsequent semesters. The following will be available on a rotating basis: English Composition II, College Algebra, General Psychology, Speech Communication and English Literature I. In addition, a biology class and a chemistry class are potential offerings. Classes will be taught by full-time and adjunct FHU faculty on site in the Hickman County schools.
High school juniors and seniors must have a 3.0 grade point average on a 4.0 scale and a minimum composite ACT score of 21. Funds from the Tennessee dual enrollment grant may be used to offset tuition for the courses.
“I am personally pleased for Freed-Hardeman to have a presence in my hometown,” FHU President David Shannon said. “These courses will provide Hickman County students an opportunity to jumpstart their college careers at a reasonable cost. I look forward to their becoming FHU students.”
“The school system’s mission ‘to engage and develop the mind, body and character of every student for success in education, work, and life’ meshes very well with FHU’s goal of ensuring the growth of the whole person,” Shannon said.
The mission of Freed-Hardeman University is to help students develop their God-given talents for His glory by empowering them with an education that integrates Christian faith, scholarship and service. With locations in Henderson, Memphis and Dickson, FHU offers bachelor's, master's, specialist's and doctoral degrees.
