COLLEGE CREDITS & TRADE CERTIFICATES
Merit Academy's mission is to prepare students to be successful, responsible citizens in a free republic. What does that mean in regards to post-secondary readiness? The whole foundation is our intensive classical education, but the specific career exploration means different things for different students.
For some, this means a career in the military or aviation sciences. For them, we have fantastic and unique opportunities through our Civil Air Patrol and our aviation science programs (See our CAP page for updates).
For other students, this means a career in a trade or in their own entrepreneurial endeavors. For these students, we offer opportunities for trade certificates, vocational college credits, and internships/field work.
Finally, students may be considering careers that require a four year or a terminal degree, and for these students, we offer concurrent enrollment college courses, AP courses, and other college prep programs.
Current college courses available for our high school students include:
Engl 1021 College Composition
Engl 1022 College Composition II
MATH 1034 College Algebra
MATH 1420 College Trigonometry
AP Biology (College Credit Opportunity through exam)
As we grow our freshmen class to their senior year, our number of college courses will also expand.
TRADE CERTIFICATES &
COLLEGE VOCATIONAL PROGRAMS
In addition to working with local experts to provide opportunities for our upperclassmen interested in various trade and entrepreneurial careers, we have also partnered with Pikes Peak State College in their Career Start options. In this, interested juniors or seniors can attend specialized programs, earn college credit and/or trade certificates, and be well on their way to a career in that field, all while attending Merit Academy.
