Academic Options & Opportunities

Goal: Develop and implement a STEM education program and create an organized continuum of accelerated academic programming by 2024.

Dual Enrollment Image
Students have the opportunity to take advanced classes in both middle school and high school.

  • 8th grade students can take Algebra I, Spanish and/or Health classes for middle school and high school credit.
  • 9th-12th grade students can work with their counselor in the student services office to enroll in up to 10 classes at an area college for both high school and college credit.

Students in grades 9-12 that are interested in a more in depth course of study are encouraged to enroll in our AP classes.  These courses are designed to prepare students for the College Board AP test related to that course's content.  Depending on the test score result and college acceptance policies, students have the chance to earn college credit for taking the test.

Accelerated Learning HeaderCCS appreciates the wide range of unique learners that make up our student body.  Our teachers distinctly challenge each student's learning journey by differentiating their instruction and encouraging a pace for each to strive toward their highest intellectual growth potential while balancing a healthy mindset.  


Caledonia Community Schools values the importance of the arts by incorporating weekly art & music classes K-5 and supporting a wide range of available opportunities for all of our K-12 students in both class and the community.
