Embedded College


Embedded college exposes students to rigor and expectations of college and prepares them to succeed. 

Spring Lake Park High School offers college-level courses, taught on our high school campus by high school teachers, that result in transferable college credits. We offer a number of articulation agreements with colleges, Advanced Placement® courses and College in the School courses that allow students to experience the rigor of college and can earn them college credits. Our partnership with local colleges expands opportunities for each student to gain the necessary foundation and support to participate in, and benefit from, earning college credits while in high school.

Families can support their children by understanding each of the embedded college options below, talking to their child about future opportunities and encouraging their child to pursue their interests. Families and students can also partner with their Counselors of Personalized Learning to see what courses will support their learning path.
