Dual Credit Information
Dual credit gives eligible high school students the opportunity to enroll in college classes for credit prior to high school graduation making the credits part of both the student’s permanent college record and high school transcript. Instructors for dual credit courses must meet the requirements to teach at both the high school and collegiate levels. The greatest benefit of dual credit is that students accumulate college credits which assist in graduating college on-time or early.

Students have received scheduling materials through Schoology and these materials can be found below. Students should review these materials and have them ready for their counselor scheduling meetings that take place in December and January through their PE classes.
STUDENT COURSE ELECTIVE OPTIONS
There are a variety of electives students can take throughout their years at Schaumburg High School. A summary of electives for each grade can be found below or you can view the District 211 Curriculum Guide for detailed information about each course.
A career cluster is a group of careers that share common features. If you like one job in a cluster, you will probably find other jobs in that cluster that you will like as well. There are 16 nationally recognized Career Clusters. Visit District 211’s College Majors & Career Clusters to see the District 211 courses that align with each cluster.
HOW DO CAREER CLUSTERS IMPACT HIGH SCHOOL COURSE SELECTION?
Through Career Cruising students complete a career matchmaker inventory which generates two career clusters that align with their individual interests. Career interest is one factor that can help guide a student’s choice of elective course. District 211 has identified related coursework for each of the 16 career clusters.
