Advanced Placement

The Advanced Placement Program offers high school students worldwide the opportunity to take college-level courses while attending secondary school. AP courses are invariably more rigorous than other high school offerings.

To participate in an AP class is to enter a world of intense discussion and thought. Students are given the intellectual responsibility to think critically, rationally and analytically to gain a more profound understand of course content.

Such intellectual training inevitably helps students succeed in college where these skills are essential. In fact, a recent U.S. Department of Education study shows that participation in AP and other challenging high school courses is one of the strongest predictors of college success.

To find out the more about the policies of the state funded Advance Placement program read the Board Rule R277-707.
