We have great news about new dual credit opportunities at Placer High next year.  Dual Credit means you would get Placer High credit as well as college credit. 

 

A 4th block fall Kinesiology plus Care and Prevention class will be offered with students earning 6 Sierra College units.  There is a waiting list at this time but let us know if you are a strong academic student and want to be added to the waiting list. 

 

A 4th block spring Emergency Medical Responder course will be on campus for any strong students thinking about a career in Health Care and Firefighting.  We are taking signups for the new class this summer so please respond to this email if you are interested in the class. 

 

Class sizes are approximately 25 students and there are limits to total number of Dual Credit courses you may take in one term.  Dual Credit courses cannot be taken with CTE Works (ROP) classes so please work with your counselor to plan your schedule. 

 

Other current Dual Credit Courses at Placer High include English 1A, English 1B, Humanities, Bio & Sustainable Ag, Chem& AgriScience, Principles of Mechatronics, Wood 1 and Wood 2.
