Things to know for freshmen
Things to know for Freshmen…

  • House Bill 5:

    We have new graduation requirements under House Bill 5. You will learn more about this and the impact that it has on your freshman during our November 3rd “4 Year Plan Kick Off Parent Meeting”. This meeting will set the stage for planning your student’s next 3 years.

  • Freshmen Initiative

    Our goal has been to work together to support the freshmen class. We have been doing this by:

    -meeting with freshmen individually regarding grades

    -the freshmen team has been holding weekly meetings with freshmen

    -creating a mentoring program to help freshmen that are struggling academically

Grades 10 12

    What’s the difference between dual credit and AP?

  • AP credit depends on your test score and the college you attend.

  • Dual credit hours may not be accepted at private or out of state universities.
