All students at Ponaganset are encouraged to challenge themselves with the most rigorous coursework possible to best prepare them for careers and college.
These include a variety of Advanced Placement courses as well as honors-level courses.
Advanced Placement courses are open to students in grades ten through twelve. Students may select from a multitude of different AP course selections – several of which are offered online through VHS (Virtual High School). Advanced Placement courses provide the highest level of challenge offered at Ponaganset. Students will follow the College Board AP curriculum throughout the year and participate in an AP Exam in May, which could lead to college credit.
Honors courses allow students to challenge themselves with coursework that moves at a faster pace and gets into great depth than college placement courses in order to enhance preparation for post-secondary education.
