Yes... you can take calculus when you get to college. If you are taking the engineering track, you'll likely take three calculus classes and then differential equations. I took AP calculus as a senior in high school but was not able to test out of Calc I for college and I was accepted at UCLA.
While calculus is not required, it doesn't hurt to have a background in it. You might want to consider taking a pre-calc class at your local community college over the summer to get a foundation.
