AP Classes & Tests

Advanced Placement (AP)

The AP program offers high school students worldwide the opportunity to take college-level courses while attending secondary school.  

Near the end of the school year, students will be given the opportunity to take the AP test associated with the AP class they are taking. Based on the AP score received, a college will have a pre-determined number of credits they will allow a student to use toward course credit a their school.  Colleges may apply these credits differently.  

To participate in an AP class is to enter a world of intense discussion and thought.  Students are given the intellectual responsibility to think critically, rationally and analytically to gain a more profound understanding of course content.

Such intellectual training inevitably helps students succeed in college where these skills are essential.  In fact, a recent U.S. Department of Education study shows that participation in AP and other challenging high school courses is one of the strongest predictors of college success.
