PAA Plans to Offer College Course Credit

July 01, 2008 | Liesl Vistaunet

Beginning in the 2008–2009 school year, Portland Adventist Academy students will have the opportunity to earn college credit. PAA will also offer four additional honors and advanced placement classes.

Digital Broadcasting, Web Page Design, and Introduction to Art are three classes that PAA students will begin receiving college credit for beginning in the coming year. Additional advanced placement and honors classes include: music theory, language and composition, anatomy and physiology, and advanced chemistry. With added challenging courses such as these, students will be better prepared for their major studies in college.

Students at PAA have already been recognized by state and national organizations for their outstanding achievements in the areas of science and math. The Oregon Council of Mathematics recognized PAA students Ai Hasada and Joe Kim for their outstanding achievements in the 2007–2008 school year. The American Chemistry Society chose to recognize Samantha Hamilton, Nina Nguyen, Morgan Crawford and Chris Terreros for their achievements in the 2007–2008 school year.
