High school is a great time for students to start shaping their career paths. The many academic opportunities available at Crosby-Ironton High School include courses to help our students meet and exceed Minnesota State Standards, preparing them for a college curriculum. Our core classes give graduating seniors a leg up when applying for college by allowing them to explore various subjects and classes.
Beyond standard subjects, we offer classes in a variety of areas such as welding, interior design, video production, and small engines. We also offer Concurrent Courses (College in the Schools) and Advanced Standing (Tech. Prep.) Courses - college-level classes taken at the high school. This allows our students to earn both high school and transferable college credits simultaneously.
Below you'll find important information and instructions for registering for the 2019-2020 school year as well as additional resources to assist you.
Our 2020-2021 Registration Guide has key information regarding Graduation requirements, College Admissions, NCAA, Concurrent Enrollment, Advanced Standing, PSEO, Transfer Curriculum, Bridges Career Academies, Crosby-Ironton Course descriptions, and Distance Learning options.

Post Secondary Education Option (PSEO) Information
- Postsecondary Enrollment Options (PSEO) is a program that allows 10th-, 11th- and 12th-grade students to earn both high school and college credit while still in high school, through enrollment in and successful completion of college nonsectarian courses at eligible participating postsecondary institutions. Most PSEO courses are offered on the campus of the postsecondary institution; some courses araccess the PSEO Mileage Reimbursement Program Instructions.
Enrolling in a PSEO course does not prohibit a student from participating in activities sponsored by the high school.
School districts must allow a PSEO student reasonable access to the high school building, computers and/or other technology resources during regular school hours to participate in PSEO courses, whether on-line or on campus.
Each year, districts must publish their grade-weighting policy on their website, including a list of courses for which students can earn weighted grades.
All courses taken through the PSEO program must meet graduation requirements. Districts must transcript credits earned in PSEO by a ratio prescribed in statute. Districts have the authority to decide which subject area and standards the PSEO course meets. If there is a dispute between the district and the student regarding the number of credits granted for a particular course, the student may appeal the board's decision to the commissioner. The commissioner's decision regarding the number of credits will be final.
Postsecondary institutions are required to allow PSEO students to enroll in online courses consistent with the institution’s policy regarding postsecondary student enrollment in online courses.
Tenth-grade students may initially enroll in one Career and Technical Education (CTE) PSEO course if they receive a reading proficiency score of “meets” or “exceeds” on the 8th grade MCA. If 10th graders taking a CTE PSEO course earn at least a grade C in that class, they may take additional CTE PSEO courses. If the student did not take the MCA in 8th-grade, another reading assessment accepted by the enrolling postsecondary institution can be substituted. For students with disabilities, there is an alternative option to demonstrate reading proficiency.
