Advanced Placement Program
Archbishop McNicholas offers Advanced Placement (AP) courses in English, Physics, American History, European History, U.S. Government, Calculus, Biology, Music Theory, Studio Art, Computer Science, French, Spanish, and Latin.
The purpose of the Advanced Placement Program is to enable academically capable and highly motivated students to complete rigorous college level courses and earn college credit while still in high school.
Enrollment in Advanced Placement Program courses instills a sense of scholarship in the student and an appreciation of the intrinsic value of devoting oneself to the pursuit of knowledge. Success in the Advanced Placement Program is achieved through dedication to excellence on the part of teachers, students, parents, counselors, and administration.

College Credit Plus
College Credit Plus (CCP) is a program started by the Ohio Department of Education to allow students to take college courses for both high school and college credit. Formerly known as the Post-Secondary Enrollment Option Program (PSEOP), the program has transitioned to CCP to give students the ability to take courses at any public college campus (and at some participating private colleges), online, or at their own high school (not currently offered at McNicholas). The CCP program allows students the ability to earn up to 30 college credits per year, and up to 120 credits total between grades 7-12.
Process for Application
Non-public students must fill out a Letter of Intent to Participate Form (coming soon), and turn it in to their counselor by April 1. The student then must apply to the college of their choice, and be accepted. Once accepted, a student must file the Non-Public Student Funding Application (coming soon) by June 15. Students may or may not receive funding. Families will not be informed of funding until early August.
More information will be added as it is received. Dates are subject to change.
