Advanced Placement Classes and Honors Classes
Through Hunter and John Jay Colleges, juniors and seniors can participate in the “College Now” program. In “cohort classes” they are placed in college courses with other high school students, and (with more limited spots) they can choose from a wider range of courses alongside college students. Upon successful completion of these courses, students receive both college credit and high school credit. In addition to the Hunter and John Jay courses, qualified Beacon juniors and seniors can take courses at NYU or Fordham University, and upon successful completion they receive high school credit. The next page lists some of the rich variety of courses recently taken by Beacon students.
