COLLEGE CREDITS AT LINCOLN

Lincoln High School offers students many opportunities to earn college credits while in high school.  Students that successfully take college courses while in high school, especially Advanced Placement courses, are shown to be much more successful in college.

  • Advanced Placement or AP Courses are classes whose curriculum has been approved by the College Board.  At the end of these courses students take an AP Exam and based on their score can earn college credit.  These courses have a very rich and rigorous curriculum.  Lincoln High School offers AP courses in:  AP Calculus AB, AP Calculus BC, AP Statistics, AP Biology, AP United States History, AP Studio Art, AP Language, AP Human Geography, AP Music Theory, AP Chemistry, and AP Literature.
  • Dual Enrollment Courses from South West State University.  In a dual enrollment class, students take a class taught by a Lincoln teacher, but they receive high school credit as well as college credit from Southwest State University.  Currently Lincoln offers courses in College Algebra.
  • CLEP tests are tests that students can take from the college board that allow students to show mastery of subject matter.  Lincoln High School is one of the only High Schools that is also a CLEP Testing Site in the state.  This allows our students to take over 100 CLEP exams each year and save our students and families thousands of dollars each school year!

More on AP Courses:  Each spring, the College Board offers students across the country the opportunity take AP exams. Students receive a score of 1-5 on each exam; a score of 3 or higher may qualify them for college credit, advanced placement, or both in the subject area. Each college and university has its own policy on whether or not to accept AP exam scores for credit or placement.

According to the College Board’s brochure entitled, Frequently Asked Questions about the AP Program, “an AP experience that culminates in an exam grade of 3 or higher has a significant impact on a student’s likelihood of college success. Simply said, a high-quality AP course in high school does an excellent job of fortifying students for a successful transition into the battery of college courses they’ll experience in their first semester at college.” (3)
