High School College Prep & Honors Courses

Rush Education offers digital textbook-based curriculum options. Our high school courses combine the interactivity of the web with on- and off-line assignments. Our courses feature materials carefully chosen for their academic quality and suitability for a wide range of learning styles.

College prep courses have been thoughtfully designed so that successful completion prepares students for college-level courses at the most demanding colleges and universities. In addition, our school provides a wide range of honors courses, which meet the needs of college-bound students seeking a challenging academic curriculum.

The honors program takes college prep courses to the next level by focusing on critical thinking, research and writing skills, and creative application of ideas.

Advanced Placement Courses

Our school provides a wide variety of advanced placement (AP) courses, enabling students to take college-level courses and exams and earn college credit or placement while still in high school.

Advanced placement programs emphasize vocabulary development, critical thinking, problem-solving, expository writing, and research. Excellent AP exam scores enable many Rush Education graduates to be exempt from entry-level courses in college.
