Advanced Placement Courses

Admission to Advanced Placement courses is by established prerequisites, which includes teacher recommendation. Advanced Placement courses are college-level courses for the academically capable student which are taken on the Trinity Catholic High School campus. Advanced Placement courses are offered in Mathematics, Science, English, World Languages, Social Studies and some elective classes. A summer assignment will be required for all AP courses. At the end of each course, students are REQUIRED to sit for an exam written by the College Board. College credit or placement may be awarded at the discretion of the college or university a student attends. Students must have an A average in an Honors level course and receive instructor permission to register for an AP course.  A student must earn either an A or B in the current AP course to move on to other AP or Dual Enrollment courses.  In order to receive a final grade for the course, each student must also take the designated AP exam for that course.  

Advanced Placement Capstone Diploma and Certificate

AP Capstone™ is a College Board program that equips students with the independent research, collaborative teamwork, and communication skills that are increasingly valued by colleges. AP Capstone comprises two AP courses,  AP Seminar (Junior Year) and AP Research (Senior Year), which are designed to complement and enhance the discipline-specific study in other AP courses.

Many colleges recognize AP Capstone awards in their admissions process. AP Capstone candidates stand out:

  • On college applications and essays because they demonstrate critical thinking, communication, and research skills associated with AP Capstone
  • In college interviews because of the confidence, expertise, and passion they show when they talk about their unique academic projects.
  • To college admission officers, who recognize that AP Capstone students know how to build evidence-based arguments, apply research methods, work in teams, deliver professional presentations, and complete long-term academic projects.

Dual Enrollment

Trinity Catholic students may choose to earn college credit while attending high school through our Dual Enrollment agreements with Barry University, College of Central Florida Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and Saint Leo University. There is a fee for some Dual Enrollment classes. This fee is limited to three Dual Enrollment courses. If a student chooses to take additional courses, the full tuition amount charged to Trinity Catholic, will be the responsibility of the parent/guardian. If any Dual Enrollment course is dropped after the penalty-free period (usually referred to as Add/Drop) the parent/guardian will be responsible for the remaining balance of the tuition for that course. 

Dual Enrollment courses are college courses for academically capable students taught by qualified Trinity Catholic High School faculty members on the Trinity Catholic campus, except for the College of Central Florida and online Saint Leo classes. Students will need to provide their own transportation to and from the College of Central Florida. To be considered for Dual Enrollment courses, students must have a minimum 3.0 unweighted cumulative GPA. In addition, students will be required to submit minimal scores for acceptance in the Dual Enrollment program. Please see test score requirements in the course descriptions.

Students participating in Dual Enrollment courses are expected to do college-level work and will be held to college standards for grading. All grades earned in Dual Enrollment classes are recorded on an official College transcript. A student must earn either an A or B in the current course to move on to other Dual Enrollment courses.  All credits earned may be transferred at the discretion of the college or university a student attends. The Florida Department of Education determines high school credit hours earned for Dual Enrollment courses. Three credit (or equivalent) postsecondary courses taken through Dual Enrollment that are not listed on the Dual Enrollment Course-High School Subject Equivalency List shall be awarded at least 0.5 high school credits either as an elective or subject area credit as designated in the local dual enrollment articulation agreement.
