Each student has different academic abilities, talents, and education needs. For this reason, CP offers a curriculum based on the following 4 broad categories:
College Preparatory courses- for all students
Honors Track courses- for students with above average ability who are capable of taking a challenging academic schedule
Dual Enrollment courses- courses for which students may earn high school and college credit (subject to course availability). The cost of the course is the responsibility of the student.
Advanced Placement courses – as determined by the college board
Placement in the appropriate course for optimum educational results is important for all students.
Sophomores, juniors, and seniors are placed in various courses as a result of personal interests and goals, educational proficiencies in the subject area, and teacher recommendation.
Placement in Honors Track or DE courses is subject to the approval of the administration and the particular academic department.
