Advanced Placement Courses are offered to scholastic achievers seeking college credit from high school classes in English, calculus, government, U.S. history, economics or biology. By completing the classes with a specified score, students receive college credit from the State College Board.

Mississippi Virtual Public School (MVPS) is a web-based ed- ucational service offered by the Mississippi Department of Education to expand the boundaries of the traditional classroom. Studentscan access a wider range of course work, have scheduling flexibility, and the opportunity to develop as independent learners. MVPS offers additional Advanced Placement (AP) course options, alternatives to traditional learning, enhanced educational technology use, and assistance to school districts in offering subject areas where teachers are limited or nonexistent.

Dual Enrollment is a joint initiative of Grenada School District and Holmes Community College to increase educational opportunities for GHS students with 14 or more high school core units of credit. Students can enroll for college classes during high school and earn high school and college credits during the same school year, providing an accessible and economical method for students to begin their college careers.

To further broaden their educational training, the school extends opportunities for growth and leadership through clubs and extracurricular activities. To foster a well-rounded individual, many fine arts and athletic opportunities are offered.

Grenada High School students have the option to participate in the Naval Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps (NROTC). One of eleven units in Mississippi, the NJROTC Program strives to teach self-discipline and self-confidence and to instill an ability to lead and motivate. Classroom instruc-tion emphasizes citizenship, basic naval orientation and history, sea power, and seamanship. Classroom academics are augmented throughout the year by drill teams, a running team, community service activities, orientation trips, and other military training. Participation in NJROTC can assist students who are competing for an ROTC University scholarship or an appointment to the Naval Academy, Air Force Academy, or West Point and allows entry into the armed forces up to three pay grades higher than other enlistees.
