Advanced Placement/Joint Enrollment/Post Secondary Options Information Night
All interested students and their parents should make plans to attend our annual Advanced Placement and Georgia Perimeter’s ACCEL program (Joint Enrollment/Post Secondary Options) information night, on Thursday, January 7 at 7:00 p.m. Students who are qualified to participate in these programs may earn college credit while still enrolled in high school.
Our outstanding AP program is already firmly in place with an offering of over 30 different courses and an enrollment of over 1000 students. All students with PSAT scores over 50 on either the verbal or math portions of that test, or 500 or better on the SAT, and who have a strong background and interest in specific content areas are potential AP candidates. Because AP classes involve a serious commitment of time and effort, students and parents should carefully consider the number of classes to sign up for. AP classes are primarily for high achieving juniors and seniors and require prerequisites.
AP World History is available to exceptional sophomores who perform well in political science and honors 9th grade language arts (90+ without the honor points).
The ACCEL program is open primarily to seniors. We will be offering College English, College Economics and Communications/Public Speaking through Georgia Perimeter College at Northview. Advanced Calculus is offered via our Distance Learning Lab in cooperation with Georgia Tech. Students qualifying for Advanced Calculus should log on to http://coweb.math.gatech.edu.8888/distance for more information since Georgia Tech will not have a representative at information night.
All of these programs involve a registration process and recommendations. It is the student’s responsibility to make certain that they apply to enroll in a timely manner. Registration information and additional details about specific classes and programs will be available during the evening of January 7th. If you are interested and feel that you qualify for any of these programs, please make it a point to be present on Information Night. The program should last for approximately ninety minutes. Please report to the theater at 7 p.m.
