Postsecondary Enrollment Overview

Concurrent Enrollment (CE)

Dual Enrollment

Advanced Placement (AP) & International Baccalaureate (IB)

General Description

Concurrent Enrollment programs allow students to enroll in college level courses while still in High School. Concurrent Enrollment benefits students by lowering the cost of college, increasing the flexibility of academic options, increasing the ease of access to college coursework, and preparing students for a seamless transfer into college.

Two Options:

Local colleges award credit to our students at a nominal cost that the student is responsible to pay. Students/Families must contact the schools directly to find out about Dual Enrollment offerings.


With prior approval from the high school principal a student can enroll at approved colleges and take courses. The student is responsible to pay all tuition costs and fees.

Both the Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) programs give high school students an opportunity to pursue college-level studies while still in high school. Depending on the college they attend, these courses can lead to advanced placement (skipping entry-level courses) or sometimes even receiving college credit.
