The Advanced Studies program has been created for our students enrolled in Advance Placement (AP) and/or Dual Enrollment (DE)courses. Students must take at least one AP or DE junior year each semester and two AP or DE courses each semester of the senior year to be considered a member of the Advanced Studies Academy.  Students who qualify for the Advance Studies academy may also be enrolled in another academy. 

AP courses allow students to pursue college-level studies while still in high school. The Villages High School offers academically prepared students the opportunity to earn advanced placement credit in World History (sophomore year),United States History (junior year), United States Government and Politics (senior year), Statistics (senior year), English Language and Composition (junior or senior year), English Literature and Composition (senior year), Physics (junior or senior year), and Music Theory(junior or senior year).  Taking AP courses demonstrates to college admission officers that students have sought out a rigorous curriculum

In conjunction with Lake Sumter State College qualifying students have the opportunity to choose from 25 courses (88 college credit hours).  This will allow students to complete college courses while they attend The Villages High School during their junior and senior years and possibly earn an associate‚Äôs degree from Lake Sumter State College. Students earn credit toward high school graduation at the same time as earning credit toward a college degree.  Dual enrollment students do not have to pay registration, matriculation, or laboratory fees.  In addition,textbooks for dual enrollment classes are provided to students free of charge.  Student should be aware that grades received through dual enrollment at Florida colleges and universities become part of the permanent post-secondary record.  State universities will not admit a student who has less than a 2.0 grade point average on a 4.0 scale.

The Villages High School offers academically qualified student the opportunity to earn college credit in the following courses:
