Dual Enrollment Opportuniities:
Dual Enrollment Programs, previously referred to as Youth Options and Course Options, allow students who meet certain requirements to take courses at a post-secondary institution, such as UWWC (Early College Credit Program) or Moraine Park Technical College (Start College Now).
Effective for the 2018-19 school year, the Early College Credit Program (ECCP) will allow students in grades 9 through 12 to enroll in a UW System institution, or a private, non-profit institution of higher education, to take one or more nonsectarian courses, for which the student may earn high school credit, post-secondary credit, or both. The costs of courses is shared among the institution of higher education, the school district, the state, and in few cases, the student’s family.
Also effective for the 2018-19 school year, Start College Now allows high school juniors and seniors to enroll in a technical college to take one or more courses for which the student may earn high school and post-secondary credit. Courses must be above and beyond those offered at Kewaskum High School and approved by the school board.
Students interested in dual enrollment are encouraged to stop by student services for additional information about program requirements. Applications are due to the institution of higher education and need to be completed by March 1 for students interested in a fall semester course and October 1 for students interested in a spring semester course.
High school students taking youth options are responsible for bringing their college schedule to their high school counselor before classes begin to request a schedule change.
Beginning with the Class of 2017, the Laude System will replace the present class rank system for graduation recognition.
To Qualify for Cum Laude or Higher: A student must have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher and have earned a minimum of 24 honor points. It is our belief that this system will be more fair and recognize of a wider range of students. Under the Laude system, students must meet the two criteria above. Once a student meets these requirements, they can earn one of the following distinctions:
• Cum Laude (with honor/distinction) 24-39 honor points
• Magna Cum Laude (with great honor/distinction) 40-55 honor points
• Summa Cum Laude (with highest honor/distinction) 56 + honor points or more
