PSEO and CITS

Advanced Placement Program (AP)
The AP program allows students to take college level courses taught by our teachers while enrolled in their high school. Many colleges grant advanced placement or credit to students who successfully complete AP courses and score well on the AP exam. To be eligible for this benefit, students must pay the registration fee and take the AP exam in the spring.
AP courses offered are AP Language & Composition, AP Literature & Composition, AP Calculus, AP United States History, and AP World History.


College In The Schools (CITS)
College in the Schools offers high school students the opportunity to receive college credit through high school course work.
