Advanced Academics includes Advanced Placement (AP) classes, Dual Credit classes, UT OnRamps classes, and the Alamo Academies. Some of these classes and programs require an application process for students to qualify. 

Dual Credit students are simultaneously enrolled in their high school classes while also taking college classes through one of the Alamo Colleges. Most, although not all, Dual Credit classes are offered on campus and stacked with AP and Advanced classes so students can take advantage of the AP program as well. Dual Credit students earn college credit by completing their courses with a C average or higher. This credit is transferable to Texas public colleges/universities and some private.

Dual Credit is a program that allows high school students to earn college credit while taking high school courses. Most dual credit courses will earn a student six credit hours for the year that can be applied to a future university enrollment through Northwest Vista College.

What is Advanced Placement?

Students may earn college credit through the College Board AP exams. By taking an AP course and scoring successfully on the exam, you can save on college expenses. These credits can allow students to save college tuition!
