Community College of Aurora

APS has a strong partnership with CCA and offers a variety of concurrent enrollment courses where students can earn both high school and college credit.

CCA Courses
APS students who meet the requirements on their placement exams – the ACT, or the Accuplacer test – are eligible to take concurrent courses at the CCA campuses for free.

High School Courses for College Credit
APS high schools have highly qualified teachers who serve as adjunct CCA professors and teach college-level courses to eligible students at their high school campuses.

ASCENT

Accelerating Students Through Concurrent Enrollment (ASCENT) is a state-funded program that allows eligible high school seniors to remain in high school for a fifth year to take advantage of free college classes.

AP Courses

Advanced Placement (AP) courses are available to students who have shown achievement in specific areas beyond the normal course of study. Students who take AP exams and earn a score of three or higher may receive college credit.
