Mission Statement

The mission of the Division of Innovative Learning at Bossier Parish Community College is to work with current and prospective students through several existing and evolving programs. Innovative Learning encompasses the Dual Enrollment, Activating Inquisitive Minds (AIM), and Talented Arts Program (TAP) programs for high school students, off-campus studies, career and technical education, and Veteran Education Services. The Division also assists in recruiting,  campus outreach efforts, and special projects.

High School Dual Enrollment

Students currently enrolled in a public or private Louisiana high school or in an approved or registered Louisiana State Department of Education home school program may earn high school Carnegie units and BPCC college credits by meeting enrollment requirements.

Off-Campus Studies

BPCC offers college classes to area students in convenient locations such as Northwest Louisiana Technical College (NWLTC) in Minden. Classes are offered at various off site locations to better serve students. For more information, call 318-678-6540.
