Earn college credits --by taking an Advanced Placement course and scoring successfully on the related Advanced Placement exam, you can save on college expenses: most colleges and universities nationwide offer college credit, advanced placement, or both, for qualifying AP exams scores. These credits can allow students to save on college tuition, study abroad, or secure a second major. AP can transform what once seemed unattainable into something within reach.
Juniors and Seniors are allowed two excused absences for college visits. The College Visitation Verification Form must be completed, signed, and dated by an appropriate official from the institute of higher education visited by the student. Please turn in the completed form to the Attendance Office. Forms can be picked up in the Attendance Office.
