We live in a world where the sky is the limit! There is such a wide variety of options for students to fulfill their dreams after high school. Everyone’s path is different in how they choose to proceed, whether it’s pursuing a college degree or entering into a career or trade. Idaho Digital Learning works with students to prepare them for a smooth transition forward toward their chosen path. Starting as early as elementary school, students have access to a wide variety of courses that help assist them in exploring different options and opportunities. As they continue through Middle School and High School they are provided a variety of options from unique electives, Advanced Placement (AP) and Dual Credit (DC) to Roadmaps, which lead students to industry certificates or a full Associates Degree program at an Idaho college or university.
Idaho Digital Learning offers both Dual Credit and Advanced Placement courses. The Dual Credit courses are approved through Idaho colleges and universities. The Advanced Placement courses are approved by the College Board. Through these advanced opportunities, students can simultaneously earn both high school credits and undergraduate credits.
Students planning to take their AP Exams this coming spring must coordinate with their home school to order the exam within the proper time period and must take their exams during the 2018 AP Exams window of May 7 – 11, 2018 and May 14 – 18, 2018. Students will need to identify that the course provider is Idaho Digital Learning (000077) when taking the exam, not their home/face-to-face school.
Idaho Digital Learning staff will also be communicating with school Site Coordinators to remind them to assist the AP students with these items. Please feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions.
The Idaho State Department of Education offers the Advanced Opportunities program. Advanced Opportunities allow for students to individualize their high school learning plan to get a jump start on their future. These options include dual credit, technical competency credit, Advanced Placement, and International Baccalaureate programs.
