• Earning College Credit in High School


    Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate

    Upper St. Clair High School offers Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) courses. Students in these classes complete advanced, college-level coursework. At the end of each course, they take a standardized test to prove they have learned the material. 

    Students with high scores can receive college credit at many colleges around the country, and admission officers view enrollment in AP and IB courses as evidence that students sought out challenging coursework while in high school. 

    Dual Enrollment Courses

    Upper St. Clair High School partners with Community College of Allegheny County to provide dual enrollment courses. Students can earn college credit by taking the same courses as students at a nearby community college.
