Advanced Placement (AP)
The College Board's Advanced Placement Program enriches the secondary school experience of students ready to apply themselves to challenging courses. Students choosing to enroll in advanced courses benefit from higher cognitive learning experiences that prepare them for the post-secondary world. At the end of each AP course, students are eligible to take an AP test that may result in college credit. Actual credit is awarded at university and college discretion. Please be sure to communicate with colleges and universities regarding which AP test scores are accepted.
Please note that although students are encouraged to sit for the AP exam, it is not a requirement for enrollment. The district recognizes the value of the AP learning experience regardless of the possibility of college credit.
