Alpine Academy launched the Advanced Archer program in 2016 for high school students who are interested in attaining an Associate’s Degree while completing High School. This program was launched as a pilot, and has gained popularity among the community. The requirements to be accepted in this program are outlined in the Student Handbook.
During a student’s Sophomore year, and once the eligibility requirements have been met; a student is allowed to enroll in a college course offered by Truckee Meadows Community College. If the student passes the course, both semesters, they are eligible to attend a full schedule of courses at the college campus on their path to attain an Associate Degree.
Juniors create a schedule with Truckee Meadows Community College Academic Advisement that aligns with the required courses still needed to graduate high school and maintain regular communication with Alpine Academy’s College Liaison. There are additional requirements as outlined in the student Handbook.
Seniors will again work with Truckee Meadows Academic Advisement to create a schedule that also satisfies the requirements for a high school diploma, while completing the requirements for an Associate Degree.
