Dual credit and career education

Concurrent enrollment courses are college courses offered at the high school, usually taught by a trained high school teacher. Postsecondary Enrollment Options (PSEO) is a program that allows 10th-, 11th-, 12th-grade students to take college-level courses on the campus of the postsecondary institution or online. Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate programs provide college-level courses with the opportunity to obtain college credit upon successful passing of an exam. Career Technical Education (CTE) programs provide practical learning experiences along with job shadowing, internships, work-based learning, and industry-certification opportunities.

In 2014, 18.6 percent of Minnesota students participated in a concurrent enrollment program, 15.6 percent participated in an Advanced Placement program and 12 percent were career and technical education concentrators. The participation rates for International Baccalaureate and Postsecondary Education Opportunities, programs which have more limited availability, were 2.7 and 3.6 percent respectively.1
