    Dual Enrollment
    Dual Enrollment allows eligible high school students who meet CPCS requirements to enroll in post-secondary courses.

    Students will have many opportunities to test and prepare for SAT and ACT testing. Freshmen, Sophomores, and Juniors Take the PSAT in October and the PLAN in November of each year. CPCS strongly encourages students to take the SAT/ACT beginning in their Junior year to ensure ample opportunity for retesting and improving their scores.

    College-Level Examination Program (CLEP)
    CPCS students with strong content background in a subject area can earn credit through an examination program administrated by the college they attend. The College Level Examination Program (CLEP) allows you to demonstrate your knowledge in a wide range of subjects. Candidates for CLEP include students who have completed an AP course but did not earn a qualifying score of the AP exam, or who have taken several courses in one particular subject area.
