Advanced Academics

Canyon High School

Dear Cougar Nation,

Soon your student will be making course selections for the 2021-2022 school year. It can be difficult to decide which course is RIGHT for your student -- especially when there are so many options.


Most years, we have an Advanced Academics night in December to help inform parents of the differences in our advanced programs and ensure deadlines are met for Dual Credit courses. This year, we want to make this as easy as possible, providing all the information in an easy-to-view format.


Please start with the Welcome Video that intrduces Advanced Placement (AP), Dual Credit, and UT OnRamps.


  • If your student is considering Dual Credit, there are strict deadlines set by the college. (timeline provided and additional video information below)
  • If your student is considering AP or OnRamps, there are no deadlines... just sign up to take the course.



We would also encourage you to scroll down to the individual course information. Each Advanced Course offered at Canyon High School is featured below with a video about the class.


We hope this helps you make informed decisions about upcoming schedules and course loads. For questions about specific classes, please reach out to that specific teacher. We hope you enjoy learning more about Advanced Academics at Canyon High School.



With Cougar Pride,

Mrs. Courtney Woodrom
