Advanced Placement (AP)

The Advanced Placement (AP) is a cooperative program between secondary schools and colleges/universities. Students take classes using college level materials and have the opportunity to demonstrate what they have learned, possibly earning college credit or advanced placement if they meet the exam standards by the specific university. 

Why take an AP course?

AP will enable you to stand out in college admission, earn college credit, skip introductory college classes, save money on tuition, and build college skills and confidence. You don't need to be at the top of your class to be an AP student, but you'll want to be prepared for the AP course you choose. Some AP classes have recommended courses you should take first, and all AP courses ask that you come prepared to apply the RAISE value of Excellence. To choose an AP course that's right for you, talk to Mrs Jones or Mrs Oborne in Student Services.
