Advanced Placement

The Advanced Placement Program® is a cooperative educational endeavor between secondary schools and colleges and universities. Since its inception in 1955, the 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 AP 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 and enthusiastic high school teachers who follow course guidelines developed and published by the College Board.

 

Advanced Placement courses are challenging and time-consuming. There is an emphasis on reading for comprehension, writing, and critical thinking. Before enrolling in an AP course, understand you must make a substantial commitment: while you might meet criteria for taking an AP course, without the commitment to the time it takes to succeed, you will not succeed at the level to which you are accustomed. However, no other courses will prepare you for the rigor of college like AP.

 

  Why Participate?

With 37 courses and exams across 22 subject areas, AP offers something for everyone. Here are just a few reasons to sign up:
