These courses follow the curriculum of our regular (non -honors) courses, with more depth, breadth, and rigor. These courses provide an excellent preparation for future Advanced Placement, College in the Schools and College Level studies.
Advanced Placement (AP) Courses
These courses offer college bound students the opportunity to earn college credit while in high school. To earn college credit, the student must successfully complete the course and take an end of the course examination. The Advanced Placement examinations are optional (but highly recommended) for students and are administered through the nonprofit College Board for a student paid fee. Every college/university in the country has their own policies regarding accepting advance placement test scores for credit.
College in the Schools (CIS) Courses
These are University of Minnesota courses taught at Rosemount by a high school teacher who has been specially trained to teach the course. The final grades earned by the students in these courses are placed on both a Rosemount High School and University of Minnesota transcript. Tuition is paid for by the school district.
Additional opportunities are available through the Post Secondary Education Options Program (PSEO), Mentor Program, and a variety of RHS courses which offer concurrent enrollment agreements with local colleges.
