There are several ways Borgia students may earn college credit during their junior and senior years
College-level courses are available for our advanced students. Extensive reading, writing, research, and homework are expected in these courses. Students and parents must make the decision about the number of these courses that the student will take. We want students to find an appropriate balance between college-level courses, extracurricular activities, and their physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.

  • Advanced Placement Credit

    AP® is a rigorous academic program developed by the College Board. It provides academically prepared high school students the opportunity to study and learn at the college level. Each AP® course uses an AP®-approved syllabus that meets or exceeds college-level curriculum requirements. AP® courses are assessed through an end-of-course exam, which is scored by the College Board. Borgia students may take any of the AP® exams on the AP® designated exam dates (May of each year) and attempt to earn college credit based on the AP® score required by the university they plan to attend. Students must pay an additional fee.

Please Note:

Students who plan to use college credits earned during high school should contact the institution to which they want to transfer these credits as soon as possible to become familiar with transfer requirements at that institution.  Specific degree programs within educational institutions may have additional requirements for college credits to be accepted. Universities may require courses to be applied to a student’s major to be taken on their campus.
