Advanced Placement (AP): college-level courses and exams that give high school students the opportunity to receive credit and/or advanced placement in college. Students enrolling in AP courses should expect to develop analytical reasoning skills and study the subject matter in great depth. Approval for enrolling will be based on student ability, past performance, counselor and/or teacher recommendation, and prerequisite courses. Students are required to take the AP exam in the spring to fulfill the expectations of the course. Based on the score of the exam, college credit may be earned.
College Credit Plus (formerly Post-secondary Enrollment Options (PSEO) & Dual Enrollment (DE): CCP replaces Ohio's Post-Secondary Enrollment Options program (PSEO) and all alternative dual enrollment programs previously governed by Ohio Revised Code Chapter 3365. Course work becomes a permanent record on the student's transcript, as well as the high school transcript.
Eligibility: All public districts and public institutions of higher education (IHE) must allow college-ready students, grades 7-12, who qualify for college admission to participate. We encourage students to take all required courses at Tallmadge High School and pursue only electives on the college campus. Using a CCP course to replace a THS requirement must be approved by a counselor. Students may enroll in no more than 30 credits per academic year.
