AP Courses and Dual Enrollment

  • PLCS offers a number of rigorous courses that offer college credit. Students who participate in dual enrollment or advanced placement courses are more prepared for the demands of college.  Dual enrollment and advanced placement each offer college credit.

    Dual enrollment is a partnership between a college/university and the high school that provide students with the opportunity to take college level courses while in high school. Students earn both high school and college credit and must enroll in a college/university to receive credit. Participating in dual enrollment does start your college grade point average (GPA)

    Advanced Placement (AP) is a national program that standardizes courses taught by high school teachers who are approved through the college board.  To earn college credit, students must take the AP Exam. Each college/university determines what courses they will accept and the score required to be awarded college credit. AP courses do not start your college GPA.

    Both options provide students an opportunity to experience college courses in high school.
