One of the ways we are working to accomplish our Mission is to bring resources into Augsburg Fairview Academy. During the 2016 – 2017 school year we are starting a College, Career & Community series. A table will be available during lunch (12:00 – 12:25) to be used by various representatives. More information can be found on the College, Career & Community page.

Postsecondary Enrollment Options:

Postsecondary Enrollment Options (PSEO) is a program that allows 10th-, 11th- and 12th-grade students to earn both high school and college credit while still in high school, through enrollment in and successful completion of college-level, nonsectarian courses at eligible participating postsecondary institutions. Most PSEO courses are offered on the campus of the postsecondary institution; some courses are offered online. Each participating college or university sets its own requirements for enrollment into the PSEO courses. Eleventh and 12th-grade students may take PSEO courses on a full- or part-time basis; 10th graders may take one career/technical PSEO course. If they earn at least a grade C in that class, they may take additional PSEO courses.

There is no charge to PSEO students for tuition, books or fees for items that are required to participate in a course. Students must meet the PSEO residency and eligibility requirements and abide by participation limits specified in Minnesota Statutes, section 124D.09. If a school district determines a pupil is not on track to graduate, she/he may continue to participate in PSEO. Funds are available to help pay transportation expenses for qualifying students to participate in PSEO courses on college campuses. Schools must provide information to all students in grades 8-11 and their families by March 1, every year. Students must notify their school by May 30 if they want to participate in PSEO for the following school year. For current information about the PSEO program, visit the Minnesota Department of Education’s Postsecondary Enrollment Options (PSEO) webpage.

 

Work Based Learning Program
Many students at Augsburg Fairview Academy work outside of school, as a way to support our students in gaining this valuable experience while working toward their future goals, we offer them the ability to earn course credit for this work. More information is available on the Work Based Learning page.
