curriculum transition

Due to Colquitt County High School’s 2022-2023 transition from a yearlong 7 period schedule to a block-scheduling model, students operate within four, 85-minute instructional periods per day. Therefore, students are limited to the number of Advanced Placement courses they may take with Colquitt County High School. Students may also take Georgia Virtual Schools (GAVS) courses and Dual Enrollment to supplement limited rigor course options.

curriculum information

CCHS is on a block schedule where students take 4 classes each day. Block scheduling was instituted in 2022.  An individual program is developed for each student, and courses are offered at varying levels of difficulty. Students may choose either College Prep., Advanced/Honors Prep, Advanced Placement and/or Dual Enrollment.  The AP offering and availability vary each year. Because of this, CCHS considers both academic Dual enrollment and AP courses as the most rigorous courses available. Students also have the option of taking Georgia Virtual School (GAVS) courses.
