High School Curriculum
Piedmont offers AP US History, AP Literature and Composition, and AP Language and Composition.
The Career and College Promise (CCP) program at Gaston College provides seamless dual enrollment educational opportunities tuition-free for eligible North Carolina juniors and seniors. Piedmont students are able to get experience in college classes from college professors and earn college credits tuition-free. Many of the CCP classes have an AP weight. This year, 46% of Piedmont’s juniors and seniors are registered for CCP classes. Last year five Piedmont students graduated having already earned a year of college credits.
Piedmont’s laptops make for a smooth process of students being able to pair online Gaston College classes with the occasional professor teaching at our secondary campus. We have a designated online classroom with a facilitator that closely monitors student progress. Please click here for more information. This is a very successful program at Piedmont.
