District Academic Options

  • Advanced Placement
    The Advanced Placement program created by the College Board allows students to complete college-level course work while in high school.  Upon successful completion of course work and corresponding exam, students can earn three to six college credits for each Advanced Placement course.  Credit for Advanced Placement courses varies based on exam scores as well as college and university requirements. Learn more about advanced placement courses. View our course catalog for a list of courses.

    Honors Courses
    Honors courses allow the student to investigate deeper in content than standard classes. The Honors curriculum also allows students to demonstrate their willingness to be involved in a more rigorous course of study. 

    Anyone who receives a 4 or 5 on the FSA should consider taking an Honors course and instructor approval. Contact your School Counselor for more information.
