Dual Enrollment/Advanced Placement Program
Dual Enrollment/Dual Credit allows eligible high school students in the 11th or 12th grade to enroll in college classes concurrently with high school classes to receive both high school and college credit. Students are responsible for all fees, tuition, and other related expenses for dual enrollment.
The Advanced Placement (AP) Program is a cooperative educational endeavor of secondary schools, colleges, and the American College Board.AP courses are recognized by colleges and universities which grant credit, appropriate placement, or both to students who have performed satisfactorily on AP Examinations.
Approximately 30% of the junior class and 60 % of the senior class are enrolled in either Dual Enrollment or Advanced Placement courses for the current school year.
