Upperclassmen at Battle Creek Central High School have the ability to take free dual enrollment classes related to healthcare, which are taught on-site by GVSU professors.

Students can take courses entitled "Introduction to Healthcare" and "Medical Terminology" and can earn 3 college credits at GVSU for each course they complete.
