Advanced Placement

The Advanced Placement (AP) Program is a cooperative educational endeavor of secondary schools, colleges, and the College Board. Highly-motivated students enjoy the intellectual challenge experienced in these courses. Teachers of AP courses find that the courses greatly enhance the students’ confidence and academic orientation. Research shows that students enrolling in challenging academic courses are far better prepared for serious academic work when entering college. Most colleges and universities grant credit and/or advanced placement to students who perform satisfactorily on AP examinations.
