EXCEED your expectations with college-type classes such as Honors, Advanced Placement (AP) or our International Baccalaureate (IB) programs. We have Dual Enrollment classes that will give you community college credit while still in high school. Not sure if you are college material? Our AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) program is making college a reality. We have more counselors per student than any other school district, and they will put you on a 4+4 Plan to map out your success, and assist you and your family in finding financial aid, grants and scholarships. Through community programs like Be A Leader, Hispanic Mother-Daughter and university and community college partnerships, you’ll learn what it takes to get to college. We’ll prepare you for the SAT and ACT college entrance exams with tutoring and workshops. At Phoenix Union, as a junior you’ll take the ACT for free.
