Advanced Placement (AP) Courses

Students in AP courses might earn college credit and/or advanced placement in college if they perform well on AP exams given in May and if their college of choice accepts the AP exam for credit. College credit is not guaranteed but rather is determined by each individual college upon the student’s enrollment in that college.

All students may request all AP classes if they have met the prerequisites. RHS offers financial aid for exam fees. If you have been approved for free and reduced lunch and plan to register for an AP Exam, please reach out to or for financial support. 

AP courses at Roosevelt High School prepare students for these exams, students must pay a fee for AP exams. Students should see the Roosevelt High School Academic Intervention Specialist/Testing Coordinator if they need fee assistance. AP offerings may vary from year to year depending on student interest and staffing. Prerequisites for AP courses are outlined in the course descriptions in the Course Descriptions book on the Course Registration page. See: Advanced Placement (AP) Courses

High School and Beyond Plan

The High School and Beyond Plan, a graduation requirement, helps students get the most out of high school and think about their future. Students work with school counselors and advisors to create their own individual plan, the “personalized pathway,” throughout high school and revise their plan annually to accommodate changing interests or postsecondary goals on what they expect to do the year following graduation from high school.

The postsecondary aspirations may include pathways for application to four-year colleges or universities, two-year community or technical colleges, apprenticeship programs, industry standard certificate programs, military training, or on-the-job training.

Running Start is a program for High School Juniors and Seniors to take college classes at Washington two-year colleges and earn high school and college credit at the same time.

Tuition is free for a maximum of 15 credits per quarter in college-level courses numbered 100 or higher. However, the number of college credits each student may take free of tuition costs depends on how many classes the student is concurrently taking at the high school.

Students are responsible for tuition for pre-college courses (numbering below 100) and any credits that exceed their allowable limit. Students are responsible for the cost of books and transportation; however, fee waivers for these expenses (not including transportation) are available for students who qualify for free or reduced lunch.
