Advanced Placement

The Advanced Placement (AP Program) sponsored by the College Board, was created in 1955 as a cooperative educational endeavor between secondary schools and colleges/universities. It exposes high school students to college level material through involvement in an AP or Honors course, and it gives them the opportunity to demonstrate that they have mastered it by taking an AP examination.

The AP program enriches the secondary school experience of students who are willing and able to apply themselves to college level studies and provides the means for colleges to grant credit, placement, or both, to students who have successfully done so.

Participation in an AP course is based upon the following: the student’s preparation for the course, their willingness and ability to meet its academic challenges, and the level of support they have from family and friends.
