Consider getting a jump start on college by knocking out a general education credit or exploring a course in your desired field.

You’ll save 50 percent on tuition and get your feet wet on what college courses are like. Remember though, your grade is part of your college transcript, so choose wisely and apply yourself!

Earn College Credit at CAT-South

Students attending the Center for Applied Technology-South (CAT-South) can earn college credits by enrolling in selected Career Technology Education (CTE) programs. You then just need to successfully complete your CAT- South program, and earn a C or better on the AACC college proficiency assessment(s). Grades below C will not be reflected on your AACC college transcript. For information on specific program requirements, view the AACC - AACPS proficiency agreement.

More Opportunities at Southern

You can earn articulated college credit by completing one of the following CTE programs at Southern High School. 

  • Architecture – USM
  • Food & Beverage Management - ProStart
