In 2019, Trenton High School was approved to offer a new program titled: the Advanced Placement (AP) Capstone Diploma Program. This rigorous pathway revolves around students taking six AP Courses, two required (AP Seminar and AP Research) and four other AP courses of their choosing.
THS ADVANCED PLACEMENT (AP) PROGRAM: Since 2019, Trenton High School has been approved to offer a new program titled: the Advanced Placement (AP) Capstone Diploma Program. This rigorous pathway revolves around students taking six AP Courses, two required (AP Seminar and AP Research) and four other AP courses of their choosing. To help support this new program, we have continued to expand our course offerings to include AP PreCalculus next year, bringing our AP Course offerings to 18 approved AP Courses. This past years’ Seniors (Class of 2023) that completed the program, are the 3rd cohort with the potential to earn an AP Capstone Diploma or Certificate. This cohort of students completed the first course in the program sequence in 2022: AP Seminar and have completed the second course in this sequence: AP Research. The class of 2023’s AP Capstone students were recognized at the THS Commencements Ceremony, for completing AP’s most rigorous pathway. This past year we also successfully started another cohort of 9th grade students in the AP Capstone Program, by running an AP course (AP World History) exclusively for advanced freshmen students. This group of 9th grade students, now have the potential to take 10 AP Courses before they graduate, with the opportunity to earn college credit for passing each exam.

THS CAREER AND TECHNICAL EDUCATION PROGRAM (CTE): THS participates in a nine member consortium called the Downriver Career and Technical Consortium (DCTC) and shares over 20 programs that students have the opportunity to participate in. During the 2023-2024 schoolyear, we are planning to continue to strengthen our “in-house” Career and Technical Education (CTE) courses by advocating for funds from state and federal grants, to continue to fulfill program equipment needs in all programs. The programs that we offer include: Graphic Design, Marketing, WoodTech, AutoTech, Digital Media and Criminal Justice (Dual Enrollment Program offered through Wayne County Community College- Taylor where students can earn up to 24 college credit hours over a 2 year period).
Our Digital Media program continues to grow in popularity and plays a vital role in livestreaming the THS Commencement Ceremony and producing a weekly THS news program, Trenton News Today. This program also manages the THS Digtial Signage System that pushes out content to 10 monitors around the building to display digital announcements throughout the school day.
Our newest CTE program, Horticulture, is complimented by a state of the art greenhouse, as part of the 2018 bond initiative. This course was state approved during the 21.22 school year and gives students the hands on experience and knowledge to prepare our students to enter a job in this industry or continue their education at the college level. For the past 2 years in May the program has run a plant sale fundraiser, where students sell the plants that they have propagated right out of the greenhouse to community members. This year in addition to selling plants, our THS Art Program (Graphic Design Program and Art Classes) and Marketing Program, ran a “pop up shop” alongside the greenhouse, selling artwork and Trenton Gear.
In addition to this, the THS Auto Tech program “shop” has received a makeover from the 2018 bond, resulting in realigning the floorplan and refinishing the shop floor, to align with current standards. In addition to the changes to the shop, we are expanding our curriculum, supported by grants, to expand our student’s knowledge base with EVs (Electric Vehicles). Our Auto Tech teacher has participated in training both virtually and on site at Weber State University in Utah, to develop curriculum and receive the latest training associated with EVs. Due to student interest within the consortium, the EV curriculum and to maximize funding, we are expanding our Auto program from a 2 hour block in the AM, to include a 2 hour block in the PM as well. We are excited to support the student interest in the program within THS and the other 8 districts in the consortium.
