Advanced Placement (AP) Courses
Advanced Placement is a program run by the College Board (the makers of the SAT) that allows a student to take courses at one's high school, which can earn college credit and/or qualify one for more advanced classes in college. An AP exam is a test of all that was learned in an AP class. College credit can be earned if one passes the exam given at the end of the year in May. AP tests are scored between 1 and 5, with anything above 3 considered passing. Each college/university has its own policy on whether or not a score constitutes earned college credit.

CAREER & TECHNICAL EDUCATION (CTE) COURSES

Certain CTE courses qualify for dual enrollment, and will allow students to earn both high school and college credit simultaneously. In order to take these courses, students may need to meet the college requirements for taking the courses (usually pass the college reading assessment). For a detailed list of which of these courses qualify for college credit and to see the requirements to get this credit, contact a Guidance Counselor or the District Career and Technical Education Coordinator. Fees will be collected at registration and are non-refundable. If you feel that your child is eligible for a CTE class fee waiver due to economic hardship, please contact the District’s CTE Coordinator, Steven Sipes,  at ssipes@cguhsd.org or 520-316-3360 ext.1122. Note: Some universities may grant fine arts credits for CTE courses. For more information, please see a Guidance Counselor.

HONORS COURSES

Honors courses are considered to be more academically challenging classes that proceed at a faster pace and cover more material than a regular class. Honors classes are usually reserved for talented high school students who excel in certain subjects. Passing an honors class is an excellent way for high school students to demonstrate their academic competency and discipline to college admissions boards.

JROTC

The Marine JROTC curriculum covers diverse areas to include: marksmanship, physical fitness, land navigation/mountaineering, public speaking, military history, customs and courtesy, leadership, first aid, close order drill, drug and alcohol awareness, current events, "real world" social skills, team work, and problem solving techniques. This program is not combat oriented, nor is it a recruiting activity. The objective is to teach young adults to become informed and responsible citizens, develop leadership skills, strengthen character, and promote an understanding of the basic elements and requirements of national security. Additional objectives are to help students develop self-discipline, confidence, and integrity. Semi-annually, the unit travels to the West Coast so cadets can receive "first- hand" knowledge of selected active U. S. Marine Corps units and their mission. Physical fitness through running, exercise, etc. is required weekly. Uniforms will be issued and are the required wear on weekly inspection days. Equivalency credit: Successful completion of JROTC Leadership fulfills one PE credit for high school graduation.
