Advanced Placement (AP)

  • AP College Board Program Logo

    Advanced Placement (AP) is a program of college-level courses taught in the high school setting by high school teachers. All AP courses have been approved by College Board, and provide students with the opportunity to seek advanced coursework leading to advanced placement and/or college credits through successful completion of a College Board AP examinations. All students taking and passing AP courses are expected to take the AP examination unless they follow the opt-out process. The purposes for taking an AP course are to learn a subject in greater depth, to develop analytical reasoning skills, and to develop disciplined study habits appropriate for continued success at the college level. Compared with regular high school courses, AP courses are more demanding, requiring more time and work outside of the school day, including the summer prior to the start of a course. Research shows, students that complete AP classes are better prepared for the demands of college.

    Schools determine which Advanced Placement courses will be offered based on the needs of their students. Advanced Placement courses and examinations are available in the following areas:
