Dual Enrollment Academy (DEA) participants receive college-level training to begin careers in high-demand fields. Throughout their senior year of high school, DEA students earn high school and college credits while spending the majority of their school day, both fall and spring semesters, at MATC. The DEA is designed for students attending high schools within MATC’s district.
