Early Post-Secondary Opportunities
Early Postsecondary Opportunities (EPSO's) include a course and/or exam that give students a chance to obtain postsecondary credit while still in high school. Courses, whether stand-alone or in conjunction with an exam for postsecondary credit, must be aligned to postsecondary standards.
Early Postsecondary Opportunities allow students to:
earn postsecondary credits while in high school
become familiar with postsecondary rigor and expectations
develop confidence and skills for success in postsecondary learning
make informed postsecondary and career decisions
decrease the time and cost of completing a certificate or degree
