Honors, Advanced Placement, and Dual Credit

Honors Courses

Honors Courses are designed to challenge the student in a deeper study of the subject by improving their analytical and critical thinking skills. Students should expect to do a major project each semester, have additional reading compared to the regular course, complete in-depth essay test questions, and spend additional time on homework and assignments.

Advanced Placement Courses

Advanced Placement Courses are designed to mirror college courses. Most college courses include many hours of out-of-class reading, research, and study. AP Courses at CCHS are no different. Due to the amount of material to be covered, students should expect to have homework over the weekends, holidays, and days school is closed. The material covered in class is only the highlights; therefore, it is very important that students remain current on assigned reading. Each AP Course has specific requirements related to the particular course of study. That information will be given to the students by the teacher when the class begins.
