Students enrolled in accelerated programs can gain enhanced college level preparation, earn advanced placement credit, or earn college credit through a community college. All students are encouraged to select courses to help them achieve their maximum academic potential.

Students earning certain grades in those classes earn college credit (LCC transcript) and Springfield High Credit (SHS transcript).
College Now classes are offered in:

Career Technical Education (CTE)
Springfield High School has an agreement with Lane Community College and Oregon Institute of Technology, that CTE (Career and Technical Education) and College Now courses can be taken as part of their many technical programs. Courses won’t have to be repeated when you graduate from high school and continue your studies at LCC or Oregon Institute of Technology (OIT). College Now Career Technical Education (CTE) opportunities are available in Business, Art, Graphic Design, Health Professions, and Industrial Education (drafting, auto/mechanics, metal/welding and woods).
With CTE you can:
- Save on tuition costs and time by taking classes at SHS
- Earn College Credit for Lane Community College while in high school by taking Career Technical Courses. Some credits may transfer to other colleges, including OIT (Oregon Institute of Technology).
- Train for a professional technical career while still in high school.
