    Advanced Placement

    Since its inception in 1955, the Advanced Placement Program has provided motivated high school students with the opportunity to take college-level courses in a high school setting. Students who participate in the Program not only gain college-level skills, but in many cases they also earn college credit while they are still in high school. AP courses are taught by dedicated high school teachers who follow course guidelines developed and published by the College Board. There are currently more than 110,000 teachers leading AP courses in high schools worldwide. AP teachers are some of the world's finest. The Program is strengthened by their participation in professional development workshops and Summer Institutes.

     
    The Exams
    The AP Examinations are administered each year in May and represent the culmination of college-level work in a given discipline in a secondary school setting. AP Exams are administered at nearly 15,000 schools around the world.  Each AP Exam is given an overall grade of 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5. Colleges may award college credit for qualifying scores.  To see a list of schools that award AP credit, go to:  https://apstudent.collegeboard.org/creditandplacement/search-credit-policies.
     
    Exams are given each year during the month of May.  Exam fees are $89.  If you qualify for Free and Reduced Lunch, please contact the AP Coordinator for exam fee information.
