Advanced Placement/Dual Enrollment Programs

The Advanced Placement program enables students to pursue college-level studies while still in high school. Through 34 college-level courses, each culminating in a rigorous exam, AP provides willing and academically prepared students with the opportunity to earn college credit, advanced placement or both. Taking AP courses also demonstrates to college admission officers that students have sought out the most rigorous curriculum available to them.

Dual Enrollment courses offer students a wonderful opportunity to receive college credit while still being enrolled in high school.
