Advanced Placement (AP)

The Advanced Placement (AP) Program is designed to provide students with an opportunity to receive college credit for introductory college courses and move directly to more interesting and challenging courses. All courses are taught according to the College Board Advanced Placement guidelines and students will use college level texts. To qualify for college credit, Advanced Placement exams must be taken on a specific date and hour during the second or third week of May. Each test is designed and will be scored by the Educational Testing Service. Students who choose to take AP course work are expected to take the AP exam and will be responsible for its cost. Students who perform well can receive course credit and/or advanced standing at thousands of colleges and universities worldwide. Specific course descriptions can be found by academic discipline in the scholars prep guide.
