Advanced Placement

What is Advanced Placement?

The College Board's Advanced Placement Program® (AP®) enables willing and academically prepared students to pursue college-level studies- with the opportunity to earn college credit, advanced placement, or both- while still in high school.  AP exams are administered each year, in May.  A qualifying score (3-5) on an AP exam can typically earn students college credit and/or placement in advanced courses in college.
