Advanced Course Network
The new Rhode Island Advanced Coursework Network provides qualified high school students the chance to take an exciting catalog of college and career preparatory courses at no cost to participating students. Advanced Coursework Network courses are offered by Rhode Island colleges and universities, community based organizations and other school districts at no cost to WHS students or families. Governor Raimondo, the Rhode Island Department of Education (RIDE) and stakeholders across our state created this innovative new program starting in the 2016-2017 school year. Taking advantage of advanced coursework of all kinds can better prepare students for success in college or future careers. Taking advantage of dual enrollment or advanced placement courses can reduce the time it takes students to earn a college degree while significantly reducing college costs. Please see the catalog below and speak to your school counselor if you are interested in taking a course.
