Current Courses

ADVANCED PLACEMENT
Developed by the College Board, the Advanced Placement (AP) program offers high school students college-level courses and exams, which result in students having the opportunity to get a head start on earning college credits. Students who take AP courses and achieve a qualifying score open the door to several benefits on their postsecondary success journey. By earning college credit while in high school, students save significantly on college tuition, avoid required introductory courses and advance to upper-level courses, which places them on a faster track toward degree completion.

INTERNATIONAL BACCALAUREATE DIPLOMA PROGRAM
Created in 1968, the Diploma Program was established in order to provide an international education where young people would be better equipped to handle and manage the complexities of the world. A rigorous college prep program, students can choose to take IB courses specific to their interests, or be immersed in the full Diploma Program beginning in the 11th grade. Full Diploma students enroll in challenging coursework in six different subjects: English, Math, World Languages, Individuals and Societies, Experimental Sciences, and the Arts. In addition to their content areas, students engage with what IB calls The Core: Creativity, Activity, & Service (CAS), Theory of Knowledge (TOK), and the Extended Essay (EE). The belief is that students leave the DP as well rounded, holistic critical thinkers who will change the world. LEARN MORE

CAREER CONNECT 
DPS CareerConnect gives students early exposure to thousands of career options as they learn more about their own passions and interests. With access to hundreds of exploration opportunities, students visit work sites in a field they want to know more about and talk to professionals. Students take the skills learned in the classroom and apply them on the job through shadowing, internships and apprenticeship opportunities. CareerConnect’s goal is to help students identify their passions, explore what they love doing and make a career out of it through intentional planning. LEARN MORE

CONCURRENT ENROLLMENT
Concurrent Enrollment allows students to take courses through local colleges and universities while they are enrolled in high school. Students gain exposure to the academic challenges of college while in their supportive high school environment or on a college campus, earning college and high school credits simultaneously. These courses are offered free of charge to GW students. Students must obtain an A, B or C to earn college credit. Students who have earned 12 or more college credits by the end of their fourth year of high school are eligible to enroll in ASCENT. This is a 5th Year Program that allows students to remain in high school for a fifth year consisting entirely of college classes.

NINTH GRADE ACADEMY 2019
9th Grade Academy is the ultimate orientation for our incoming freshmen. Over four days students will have a chance to make positive connections with other ninth-grade students, student leaders at George, and GW’s faculty and staff. Designed to help students build a foundation for successfully navigating high school, 9th Grade Academy will prepare students by sharing homework and academic support tips, how to use Infinite Campus to monitor grades, who and where in the building to ask for anything, and how to sign up for clubs and sports.

WHERE ARE THEY NOW?
