Dual Credit / Advanced Placement


Advanced Placement Courses (AP)

Desert Christian High School offers AP classes that may earn college credits in addition to meeting high school graduation requirements. 

  • Students enrolled in Advanced Placement classes will take the College Board Advanced Placement exam that is administered on campus in the spring.  Exams are scored on a 1-5 scale.  If a student scores a three or better on the test, they can earn college credit (at the discretion of the college or university).

Dual Credit Courses

Dual Credit courses are available to students with administrator and teacher approval.  These courses not only meet the DCHS requirements for graduation but earn college credit.  

  • Students enrolled in advanced classes with the dual credit option may take the online class for credit. 
  • Students who pass the class with a grade of C or better will receive college credit.  This credit is transferable to other colleges and universities (at the discretion of the college or university).
