Mauldin High School is proud to offer a variety of unique academic opportunities to our students. Below is information about these programs. Interested students and parents are encouraged to contact current teachers or guidance counselors for more information.
The Advanced Placement Program® (AP) enables willing and academically prepared students to pursue college-level studies while still in high school.
The program consists of college-level courses developed by the AP Program that high schools can choose to offer, and corresponding exams that are administered once a year.

MHS offers limited dual credit college courses through Greenville Technical College. Students can earn college credit while earning high school credit. Courses are taught on the MHS campus during the regular school day. Students must meet specific academic criteria in order to be eligible.
Dual Credit Courses currently offered at MHS:
Service learning is a teaching method that combines academic instruction, meaningful service, and critical, reflective thinking to enhance student learning and civic responsibility. It allows students to learn and develop workplace skills and behaviors through participation in service experiences that meet actual community needs. Service projects are coordinated with school and community so that the student applies classroom skills and knowledge in real-life situations. Students experience personal reward and enjoyment, develop concern for others, and network with community leaders while completing work projects that benefit the community.
Service Learning applications are available at the beginning of the spring semester each January. Service Learning is open to juniors and seniors and students must be able to provide their own transportation to their sites. Students are evaluated on a written application (which must be signed by a parent,) attendance records, discipline records, three teacher recommendations and a brief interview with the Service Learning teacher.
Teachers recommend potential Service Learning students based on the following characteristics: Compassionate, Dependable, Good Judgment, Honest, Responsible, Trustworthy, and Work Ethic. Because students leave the MHS campus during the day to volunteer in the community, students must be judged to be an excellent representative for Mauldin High School.
Students interested in Service Learning should contact Mrs. Keeler by e-mail or stop by D-115 for more information.
