High school and college level courses provide students with many opportunities to develop and hone their skills, attitudes, and knowledge. Students may strive to obtain a major in any of the academic areas, elective disciplines such as art or music, or in occupational studies. They may earn AP and/or college credit in each major discipline. Guilderland High School has a broad array of more than 300 core courses and electives as well as increasing numbers of GHS students earn college credit through participation in several advanced placement and Syracuse University Project Advance (SUPA) courses. Currently, the high school offers five SUPA and twelve AP courses. They place an emphasis on professional development and curriculum work as vital components of our educational program.
