So, I'm graduating this year and will be going to USMAPS, an achievement that I am proud of to say the least. The question about class placement is due to the fact that I have taken several dual enrollment courses in high school, in both math and English. In math I have taken both college algebra and a pre-calculus/trigonometry class earning a B average in both. My question is, do I have to retake them at USMAPS or will I get the opportunity to test out of them and take the AP calculus course? Does the same apply to English? All and any answers are appreciated.

MATH There are 3 math tracks at USMAPS: 1) AP Calculus 2) Precal 3) Algebra/Trig Everyone takes Precal the first half of the 1st quarter. The track that you will then be placed in will be determined by: 1) how you did in the first half 2) the teacher's recommendation 3) a basic skills test 4) SAT/ACT scores ENGLISH There is an honors track that you can be placed in if you meet certain requirements after the 1st quarter

Well - looks like USMAPS offers a Science Integration course now. Below is a great presentation about USMAPS. One of the slides shows what typical day is like: http://www.usma.edu/usmaps/SiteAssets/Sitepages/Home/Official-USMAPS-overview.pdf

Hey bro! Congrats on the appointment!! PM me if youd like to chat. We have a group message going on with 18 of us that will be there next year. I can add you to that if youd like!
