What are some differences between High-school graduation requirements & university entrance requirements?


“The most important thing about college is that it is a future goal for all of us. A family can make it happen with hard work and supporting each other and it will happen, and we will succeed supporting each other and it will be an accomplishment and we will be PROUD! But the most import thing about college is that it is our FAMILY’s future.”

Students who are doing well in any of their core subject areas should consult with their high school counselors about taking Advanced Placement (AP) courses; these courses challenge students in ways that may prepare them to be successful in college. Students who earn a minimum score on the AP course exam can receive college credit for their high school work. This can save students money and time in college!
