What is Advanced Placement?
Advanced Placement (AP) is a program created by College Board that offers college-level curriculum and examinations to high school students. AP courses are designed to attract and challenge students who have strong reading, writing, and critical thinking skills, and work well in a demanding classroom environment. These courses offer students the ability to receive college credit by earning a qualifying score of 3 or higher on the AP exam taken in May. AP courses differ from traditional college-prep classes in that they move at a faster pace, have higher expectations, more rigorous curriculum, and augment the GPA. We encourage all students to participate so that they stand out in college admissions and skip introductory classes at the college level.
