NOTES
CC1 denotes a class that may be taken for both high school and college credit.  The tuition and textbook fees for college credit classes are set each year by Wytheville Community College.  Students registering for these courses must take a placement test administered at OHA by staff from Wytheville Community College.

Courses listed in bold print are Honors Courses. Students also may contract with their teachers to take other courses for the “Honors” designation.

All courses given high school credit are counted equally in the grade point average, which is unweighted.

Each course awards high school credit unless otherwise indicated.
