College and University Programs for High School Students

The State of Maine and many local colleges and universities offer programs that enable high school students to take college classes at a greatly reduced rate.  We encourage students who feel they may be ready to look at available courses and talk to their counselor and families to determine if this is a good fit for them.

The state of Maine offers free, online AP courses to high school students.  These courses are year long, start in Sept., and culumniate in an AP test in May.  Registration for next year is now open. Please contact your Counselor for more information and see the links below.
