Concurrent Enrollment / Advanced Placement?

Concurrent enrollment courses focus on skills specific for that college course curriculum using the college syllabus and college level textbooks.  Students receive a grade and actual college credit for the work performed throughout the entire course culminating with a college transcript reflecting their completed course and final grade.  Success is based on a variety of assessments throughout the semester, not solely upon one test.  The college transcript may be sent to the college of their choice.  Acceptance of credit for college level coursework is under the domain of individual colleges and universities.


Advanced Placement classes prepare students to pass the AP exam.  Credit is awarded solely on the student's performance on this one exam.  Scores may be sent to the college of their choice.
