The Early College Academy is designed to provide qualifying CHS scholars the opportunity to experience college level academics. Scholars will have the opportunity to garner college credits through both Dual Enrollment and Advanced Placement (AP) courses. The increased rigor of these offerings will familiarize scholars with the thinking, writing, problem-solving, and research skills they will see on a university campus. Research shows that students who are introduced to college level courses in high school are more likely to graduate from high school and significantly more likely to enroll in college and earn a degree.
Our Information Technology Academy is focused on exposing our students to the fundamentals of software development. Through our Information Technology Academy, our students have the opportunity to earn Level 1 and 2 industry-based credentials in Fundamentals of Java Script, Functional Programming, and Web Development.
