Advanced math students can earn Georgia Tech credits with program

Gwinnett students who want a real math challenge have a new option. Beginning in 2008-09, students may qualify to take college-level Calculus II (fall 2008) and Calculus III (spring 2009) through a dual enrollment program with Georgia Tech. Rising seniors who qualify will attend the advanced math classes at one of two host sites— Peachtree Ridge High or Brookwood High.

The program is open to qualifying students from all GCPS high schools. Students will be responsible for transportation to the host school. Classes will meet daily from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. Students who successfully complete the courses earn college credit from Georgia Tech.

To qualify, students must have a 3.0 or higher overall grade percent average (GPA); a 3.0 or higher GPA in all math courses; a 4 or 5 on the AP Calculus AB exam or a 3, 4, or 5 on the AP Calculus BC exam; and a 600 or better on the math portion of the SAT or a 26 or better on the ACT.

Applications must be submitted by April 15. The program will consider results from May 2008 AP testing. Click here for more information about the admissions process.
