Students are encouraged to take challenging courses that prepare them for college and/or expose them to potential career interests.
We recognize that the grades eanred do matter when students apply to colleges and scholarships. Therefore, courses awarding college credit are weighed at a value of 1.25. Types of weighted courses include:
- Advanced Placement (AP) courses.
- Concurrent enrollment courses (earn college credit while taking them in the high school environment), including CIS (University of MN), College Now (Southwest State University), and Pine Technical & Community College.
- Post-Secondary Education Options (PSEO).
Courses offered with weighted grades and the weight values can be found at this link. Please see Ranger U for additional information.
