Rushford-Peterson High School provides juniors and seniors the opportunity to get a headstart on their college education

By Jenny Helgemoe, R-P H.S. Counselor

Rushford-Peterson High School is providing juniors and seniors the opportunity to get a head­start on their college education. For a number of years now, R-P High School has been offering dual credit courses. Through dual credit courses, students can earn both high school and college credits. R-P juniors and seniors have a number of ways they can earn college credits without leaving the high school campus. Students can earn dual credit through Concurrent Enrollment, College in the Schools, Advanced Placement, Articulated Courses, and Online College in the High School.

Most of our dual credit courses come out of a partnership we have with Minnesota State College Southeast Technical. Concurrent enrollment courses are taught by our high school teachers who work in conjuction with Southeast Technical instructors to ensure their courses are properly aligned and meet the rigor of the college courses. The following courses are classified as Concurrent Enrollment: AP English Literature and Composition, English 12, Human Biology, Hispanic Cultures, Sociology, Statistics, and Pre­Calculus. All of these courses fall under the Minnesota Transfer Curriculum. They will likely transfer to many colleges even outside of the MnSCU (Minnesota State Colleges and Universities) System.

Students can become eligible for concurrent enrollment through a variety of ways. Students need to achieve certain scores on an Accuplacer or ACT. In some instances, class rank may also be considered. This year, we have 55 juniors/seniors eligible for concurrent enrollment.

College in the Schools is a program through the University of Minnesota. Our Spanish IV is taught at the high school and is aligned to a college Spanish course. In order to be eligible to take Spanish IV, students need to rank in the top 30 percent of their class and have completed Spanish III.

Advanced Placement (AP) is a College Board Program that offers college-level curriculum and exams to high school students. We offer three AP courses which include AP English Literature & Composition, AP Biology, and AP US History. Students take exams in the spring to determine eligibility for college credits.

Articulated courses comes out of the career and techical education area. R-P High School has four courses that fall into this category. These courses include Advanced Natural Resources, Child Development, Ele .....
