College Preparat& Honor Courses

  1. 1. Are they helping you for your future?
  2. 2.  The average high school class is considered a non-college preparatory class.  It is what a student takes when they aren’t receiving high enough grades for college preparatory classes
  3. 3.  Definition: preparing a student for academic work at the college level Contains: -More detailed lectures -More homework -Higher expectations Than a average college preparatory class
  4. 4.  College Board Definition: “Honor classes are often offer the same curriculum as regular classes but are tailored for high-achieving students”  Courses contain: ◦ Higher expectations than college prep & average courses ◦ In-depth homework ◦ Debates ◦ A longer, more in-depth lecture on a topic
  5. 5. A student is in high school for at the minimum of four years. Most of high school students want to take advantage of the classes that will benefit them for their future. That means that they will want to take higher courses, if they can. But how do you get into these courses?
  6. 6. If the student is coming out of middle school and going into high school (or want to go into a college prep course anytime during high school)  First, the student will need to receive high B’s and A’s in the course(s)  Second, the student needs to make an appointment with their counselor & talk to them about getting into a college prep course That is all that is needed to getting into a college preparatory course.
  7. 7.  First, the student has to have a high A in the course that they would like to take as an honor course.  Second, talk to a counselor. See what the counselor can do for you.  Third, if you have a high enough grade & there is available seats in an honor course then you can ask to be placed in that course.
  8. 8.  College prep & honor courses are offered because they, “ help students improve there analytical, comprehension skills and communication”  “It offers students a taste of college life. . . Students can truly understand what college will be like and they can better investigate potential course load”.
  9. 9.  Every school is different because all schools have a different budget & the courses that are offered depends on the budget  Typical schools have the minimum of English, history, & math courses.  Other schools that have a higher budget can have better college prep and honor courses such as” ◦ Psychology, Computer science, Classic languages .& so on.
  10. 10.  “Low-level course work increasingly is viewed as being unsufficient to prepare any students for life after high school” ◦ Meaning that the students who don’t take college preparatory courses or honor courses are not as prepared for the life they will have no matter what it be after high school
  11. 11.  Whether you take College Prep or Honor Courses in high school or both, they will more than likely help you get through college. ◦ Holly Tarr, Freshman at Santa Barbara took honor courses all throughout high school. She know explains that by taking those courses she was able to have a “better understanding of what college classes would be like [and with] expectations of what the classes would be like” when she entered Santa Barbara University.
  12. 12.  Do you believe that college courses will benefit you for your future and how? ◦ Sam Vantress, a high school student, answered that question with a, “I think they will because they have taught me skills about writing and how to learn different techniques because they are better teachers and I learned more from them than I would have a normal teacher.
  13. 13.  In 2013, data shows that in the Yuba County alone only 24% of students took college preparatory courses. ◦ Meaning less than 1/3 of high school students chose to not take higher courses  “People with a Bachelors degree make 86% more than over a lifetime than high school graduates” ◦ Meaning that the people who went to college after high school & received a diploma, often earn more money yearly
  14. 14.  College Preparatory & Honor courses are very similar in reason, & are slightly different compared to Average courses but we see that in the long run taking these courses in high school will benefit the student for their life after high school, with getting into college and being able to stay without feeling overwhelmed with not knowing what is coming
