College Classes For High School Students

Jimmy Said:

Do regular high school classes adequately prepare students for college?

We Answered:

Not at the school I went to. To be honest, I feel that I could have skipped 10th, 11th and 12th grade. All three grades were a waste of time.

However, many schools are better than the one I went to. If you take AP and Honors classes, you should be well prepared for college.

Ronnie Said:

What classes can a High School student take at a college for college credit?

We Answered:

When I was your age, I dual enrolled, as well. I took Psychology, English Comp I & II (which take the place of your senior English credits, by the way...), and Computer classes (intro to computers). Basically, go look at a college catalog for the major you plan on going into. Then, start taking all of those little classes. I'd suggest Math, Science, and Computer classes (mainly because the books are so expensive and with dual enrollment, they pay for books and tuition). Talk to your school's guidance counselor and the college's student advisors. It's great that you're so motivated! It definitely pays off.

I wouldn't take more than 1 or 2 a semester (half a year) to start out with, though. :)

Steve Said:

is college easy enough for a high school student? college students!!!?

We Answered:

It's not nearly as big of a deal as you are making it out to be!! I participated in this exact same thing and am sooo glad I did! When I did it, it was called concurrent enrollment and I received high school and college credit for taking community college classes. I did it my junior and senior year of high school.

If your school allows you to do this program, you definitely should, especially if you plan on going to college after high school! College is a much different (and better) experience than high school. However, you are much more accountable in college. In most classes, professors don't take attendance, and don't freak out if you don't turn in an assignment, much like high school teachers do. You must be sure to pay attention to dates and deadlines. Also, they are not as lenient with late assignments or making up tests. To me, this was actually a good thing because there weren't as many rules as in high school.

If you do decide to participate, you must be very determined and motivated because you have so much more accountability. Also, make sure to take only one or two classes. If you take any more, you will be overwhelmed since you have to complete your high school and college homework. Since you are still in high school, taking college classes is a great way to explore different subjects you may be interested in.

There are many advantages to doing this type of program. First, you will already have college credits before you graduate high school, which is a major accomplishment. Also, when entering a university, you will already know what to expect. This is very important because most high school students do not get the preperation they need to be ready for college. This is why college freshman have the highest drop out rate.

Another good piece of advice I have for you is try to figure out what you are interested in early, so that way when you get to college you can declare a major and start working towards your degree right away. When I entered college, I was ahead and already had many college credits. Unfortunately, I did not know what I wanted to do and so now I am a little behind on my major requirements. But don't let this scare you because most college students don't declare their major until their second year. Also, most of them change their major at least twice!

Anyways, the whole point is- go for it! Talk to your advisor about applying. An advisor will be able to answer any extra questions you may have. College education is so important! Get ahead while you can!!!
Good luck and stay focused!!!

IB-college level classes given to high school students. i dont know what to do?

We Answered:

IB programs are not as standardized as they are supposed to be. IB classes are not considered as rigorous as AP classes or Honors classes. You won't find IB programs at top prep schools (around 50% seniors National Merit recognized), at least not that I've seen. It is likely you will do fine in an IB program. Take a look at the curriculum, but chances are it's not as difficult as you think it's going to be, just a step above the regular curriculum.

To give you a better chance of getting into a good college, take the most rigorous classes that you can take, and do well in. Don't overload yourself.

Good luck!

Are there any good photography classes in Chicago for high school students at a college ?

We Answered:

For college credit? Or not?

If not, check out Calumet Photo's little seminars. That's a good place to start.

But, of course, that's not really classes of the college type. But they're pretty darned good.

If it's for college credit, then I could not more strongly recommend Columbia College. It offers a bachelors in both digital media and photography... and I know someone who graduated from the latter years ago and she's a very famous photogrpher today. You'd recognize her name.

Whether or not you'd be able to take any of its classes while you're still in high school is something you'd have to ask Columbia.

The CHICAGO PHOTOGRAPHY CENTER is an excellent choice for non-college-credit photography courses, seminars and "boot camps."

SEE: http://www.chicagophoto.org

I could not more highly recommend it!

Were I in your shoes, I'd also consider a very well-thought-of distance learning photography program out of New York... a program that's fully accredited, too, by DETC which is an accreditor approved by the US Department of Education (USDE) and the Council on Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA).

SEE: http://www.nyip.com

I could not more highly recommend that, too... and you could knock the whole thing out from home. It's distance learning, remember.

If you'd REALLY like to learn from a master, go take a class from Richard Stromberg...

SEE: http://www.chicagophotoclasses.com/

There's also the Harrington Digital Photography School, and Truman College... either of which you should be able to find via Google, easily enough.

Hope that helps. Good luck.
