Honors

Honors-designated courses at the middle and high school levels are designed to provide students with rigorous learning experiences in preparation for collegiate experiences.

  • Advanced Placement (AP) courses enable students to experience college-level coursework in a high school setting. AP courses encourage a hands-on approach to learning and provide learning opportunities in preparation for college and beyond. By participating in college-level coursework in high school, students can push themselves and take risks in a familiar setting and access onsite tutoring and support while also gaining academic confidence and a rewarding experience. Students have the opportunity to earn college credit with a passing score on AP course exams. Each school offers a variety of AP classes that align with students’ interests and plans for the future.
