Early college is an opportunity for high school students who want to earn high school credit and college credit simultaneously. Students take classes through Chemeketa Community College, Portland Community College, Clackamas Community College, or Sophia (online) and earn credits toward high school graduation.  High School juniors and seniors may take a full load of 12 credits with teacher approval.  Freshmen and sophomores will typically be enrolled in only one college course at a time and require administrative approval.

Sheridan AllPrep Academy will pay college tuition and fees for up to 12 credits each term, pending budget approval.  Juniors and seniors may choose to take more than 12 credits; however the financial responsibility for additional credits will belong to the student and family.  School funding for early college is dependent on the current school budget and may be withdrawn upon notice from the school.

To enroll in Early College, students must have grades of C or better (70% or higher) in all of their current classes.

All early college courses must count toward the requirements for a high school diploma.  College courses can be taken on any community college campus.  Students who choose to take online college courses (other than Sophia) must pay the extra expense for those courses.

Student and Parent Responsibilities:

Before registering for any classes, you must meet with your teacher to determine the classes for which you are eligible.  After you register, you need to send your schedule to your teacher.  When you receive your final grades each term, you must email a copy to the registrar.  At the end of each school year, you will be required to order an official transcript from the community college and have it sent to Sheridan AllPrep Academy.

Registering for Classes


After meeting with your teacher or the principal, and you have approval to register, no changes can be made to your academic plan.

Dropping Classes


You must have administrative approval in order to drop any classes.  If you drop any classes without approval, you will be put on Academic Probation.  If you drop a class after the refund date, you will be responsible for paying the tuition and fees for that course.  You will not be allowed to register for additional classes until tuition repayment is complete.

Students must maintain a 2.0 GPA or better at the community college and at the high school.  All grades must be a C or above.  Students who earn a D or lower in any class will not be eligible for early college again until the following school year and must have administrative approval.

Understanding College Credit:

College classes are typically three to four credits each and a full time student would take 12 credits (the equivalent of three high school credits) per term.  Each college course will be worth one high school credit.  At the end of the school year (three terms) students would have up to 36 college credits and nine high school credits.

Students are not required to attend community college full time.  Students who are accepted into the early college program can take a minimum of one college course per term (one high school credit) and continue to work in regular high school classes as well.

Textbook Information:

Students will be required to purchase their own textbooks.  However, Sheridan AllPrep Academy will provide a flat fee stipend for some textbook expenses. Funds for textbooks are given directly to the college and applied to the student account.  Textbook funds may only be used for books that are required for courses for which the student has registered.  Excess amounts that are not used after book purchases are complete will be refunded to Sheridan AllPrep Academy, not the student.  If you purchase books from the campus bookstore, it is possible to sell them back to the bookstore at a reduced value at the end of the term.​

Success In College:

  • Stay in touch with your teachers at Sheridan AllPrep Academy.  They are here to help you understand early college and can answer many of your questions.
  • When planning your schedule, make sure you allow additional study time.  Some college courses can be very demanding.
  • If you plan on attending a four-year college after high school, begin the transfer process early.  Find out which programs they offer, and check to see that your community college credits will transfer to their programs.
  • Attend every class.  If you miss a class, contact the instructor or a classmate as soon as possible to find out what you missed.
  • Get to know your teachers and classmates.
  • Become familiar with the college campus.  Find out where the different offices are so that you know where to go for help.
  • Follow your teachers' syllabi and directions.
  • Always go to class prepared.  Make sure you complete any reading assignments prior to class discussions.  If you have difficulty understanding the classwork, meet with your teacher and ask questions.
  • Submit all of your assignments on time.  It will count as part of your grade.
  • Manage your time.  Schedule time for your classes, homework, studying, and free time.
  • Prepare for tests and exams at least one week in advance.  Research shows that students who try to cram the night before a test do not retain the information.
  • If you have to be absent for an exam, let your teacher know ahead of time.
  • Get involved in college activities.
  • Use the college services such as tutoring, student support, counseling, and the writing center.
  • Take responsibility for yourself.  Your success is dependent on you.

billing authorization, or you may be enrolled in classes we did not approve. It is up to you to pay or to follow up with us to get the authorization before the term begins. PCC does not send paper bills, so it is important for you to view your account during the first week of term.
