Honors Classes

Starting freshman year, students are permitted to enroll in Honors classes at Lansing Catholic High School.  These courses are taught at a faster pace than our typical college preparatory courses so more material is covered.  Placement in freshman Honors classes is based on middle school grades and teacher recommendations as well as our own bypass exam scores in select subjects.  Placement in sophomore, junior, and senior Honors classes is based upon grades and teacher or department chair recommendation.

Advancement Placement (AP) Classes

Lansing Catholic High School offers 16 Advanced Placement courses for college credit.  A college level curriculum is taught in an Advanced Placement course. Each May, AP students take the national Advanced Placement exam in the subject areas for which they've taken AP classes.  If the student scores a 3 or higher on a scale of 1 to 5, then the student is almost always granted college credit and/or waiver by the college where the student will attend.

Dual Enrollment

Dual enrollment through Michigan State University and Lansing Community College are available to junior and senior students after all graduation requirements have been completed.  For more information, contact your assigned counselor at Lansing Catholic High School. Contact our counselors for more information.
