9. How many college courses? Are summer classes possible?
Counselors consider students’ Individual Career & Academic Plans (ICAP), pathways, academic history, graduation requirements, as well as personal readiness when determining college course load each semester. Students usually begin Concurrent Enrollment with a combination of high school and college courses, progressing to heavier college course loads (15+ college credits per semester) and lighter high school course loads as they become comfortable with college courses.
Students may take college courses during the summer; however, D49 funding and support are not available and parents pay tuition and fees. Summer students can provide a copy of their summer college transcript to their high school registrar, who will record courses, grades, and credits on HS transcripts.
