Advanced Placement

Advanced Placement

AP courses prepare students for college work and are equivalent to freshman courses at a university. These courses teach students to think more deeply about complex college concepts. Successful completion of the course offers students the opportunity to sit for the Advanced Placement exam for college credits. Most exams are worth 3 college credits, but can count for up to 8 college credits. While the acceptance of these scores varies from school to school, all colleges consider strength of schedule in the admissions process. AP courses help distinguish a student in this process. Students who take AP courses are required to take the exam to receive the weighted credit for the course in their cumulative GPA.  Tests are in May and financial aid is available for students who qualify.
