College In The Schools (CITS)

CITS courses are classes that are taught at the high school by high school teachers.  Students earn both high school and college credit at no cost to them.  Upon graduation, the college credits can be transferred to whatever post-secondary school the student plans to attend.  Duluth Public Schools partners with the following colleges: Fond du Lac
Tribal and Community College (FDLTCC), Lake Superior College (LSC), College of St. Scholastica (CSS), and the
University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD).
