CP vs HONORS COURSES
Students need 26.5 Upper School course credits in order to graduate from Oakbrook. We call them units. Students in the 8th grade have the opportunity to take three courses for credit.

There are three levels for Upper School courses:

CP (College Preparatory): These courses are designed to fulfill the requirements to earn a high school diploma and prepare students for college.

Honors: These courses are designed to be academically challenging and preparation for advanced
placement courses.

AP (Advanced Placement): These courses are designed to be academically challenging and are taught on the college level.
*8th graders are not eligible to take these courses.

Note: A prerequisite is a course that you need to have taken BEFORE taking the course you are requesting.

After your requests are made, your teachers will approve (or deny) your requests, based on their best recommendation for you.

For future planning, please see the 2020-21 Curriculum Guide for more details about courses for graduation credit. https://www.oakbrookprep.org/pdfs/Curriculum-Guide-2020-2021-Final.pdf
