What is “Enrichment”? At St. Louis Park High School, we want every student to access academic experiences that support the development and deepening of their brilliance.  Enrichment provides students with the opportunity to be challenged, expand their perspectives and skills, and grow as learners and critical thinkers.  Over the span of their high school careers, SLPHS students will engage in multiple forms of enrichment across their coursework.  The specific options listed below provide students with postsecondary opportunities through career and/or college experiences and the potential to earn college credits. 

What are the possibilities for enrichment at SLPHS? 

Advanced Placement (AP) Do you want to experience a college-level course in a content area you are passionate about?  AP courses enable students to pursue college-level studies in several different content areas.  There are no prerequisite courses to register for AP and students can choose to enroll based on their own areas of passion.  In order to gain college credit for AP courses, students take an exam at the end of the school year through the College Board.  Credit is dependent on the score a student earns on the exam. () 

Articulated College Credit (ACC) Do you imagine yourself taking a career path after high school? Articulated courses are college courses offered at the high school, and taught by a trained high school teacher. These are offered in partnership with a college or university. Students who successfully complete these courses generate a high school credit. College credit(s) will be granted from the partnering postsecondary institution if the student receives 80% or higher as a final course grade and completes a course from the partnering institution(s).

Concurrent Enrollment Are you interested in taking a college level course for credit, but want to remain at SLPHS to do so?  Concurrent enrollment courses are college courses offered at the high school, and taught by a trained high school teacher. These are offered in partnership with a college or university. Students who successfully complete these courses generate both high school and transcripted college credit from the partnering postsecondary institution.  Students must meet concurrent enrollment eligibility requirements.

International Baccalaureate (IB) Are you interested in taking college level courses with a globally minded perspective?  This internationally recognized program offers college-level coursework where students have the opportunity to earn college credit through an end of the year exam given by the IB.  For some IB courses, a prerequisite course is required.  Students have the option to take both Standard Level (SL) or Higher Level (HL) courses. Additionally, students have the ability to earn an IB Diploma by completing IB coursework across multiple content areas and fulfilling additional program requirements which engage students in college level writing and community service and action. 

Work Based Learning (WBL) Are you interested in learning about a career field through hands-on experience and mentorship? WBL is a structured component of the Career and Technical Education (CTE) curriculum that integrates classroom instruction with productive, progressive, supervised, paid internships related to students’ career objectives. Students earn high school credits, industry-recognized certifications and credentials.

Postsecondary Enrollment Options (PSEO) Are you an independent learner who is ready to engage in courses on a college campus?  PSEO is a program that allows students in *10th, 11th and 12th grades to earn college credit while still in high school, through enrollment in and successful completion of college courses at eligible postsecondary institutions. Students generate both college credit and high school credit by successful completion of the course. Students must meet the PSEO eligibility requirements. *PSEO for 10th-Graders are Career and Technical Education (CTE) Courses.
