Standardized Testing

Immanuel Christian School prepares students for college admissions testing by providing practice SAT (PSAT), ACT (Explore), ASVAB exams. Students will be able to take these exams at ICS during school.

College Prep Program

All Juniors (11th grade) take an SAT prep course called College Prep which prepares students for the SAT as well as helping students navigate and prepare for the college application processes. College Prep also helps our students with career planning.

AP Courses

Advanced Placement (AP) courses offer high school students a higher level of learning to better prepare them for college. An AP Exam is offered at the conclusion of the course and the student may obtain college credit for the course by achieving a passing score on the exam.

For upperclassmen we currently offer:

AP English Language and Composition (English 3), 

AP English Literature and Composition (English 4),

Dual Credit

Dual Credit allows high school students to take courses that will earn both high school and college credit. We currently offer some dual credit courses for 11th and 12th-grade students through El Paso Community College. Please check with the Academic Counselor for options and availability, Ms. Martha Rojas at mrojas@immanuelwarriors.org.
