Handbook policies regarding AP Courses:

Frontier Academy students are given the opportunity to achieve in classes that are academically rigorous to better prepare themselves for post-secondary opportunities. You will also have the opportunity to take Advanced Placement (AP) courses. In addition, AP classes are geared towards taking the AP exam for that class. If the AP exam is passed, most colleges will give you credit for the course. AP classes will be indexed to help determine class rank. If the student takes an AP class and does not take the AP test the student is not entitled the weighted grade.  Due to the rigor of AP courses, it is imperative that students keep up with assigned course work.  Students who fail to turn in 3 assignments may be dropped from the AP course with a withdrawal fail grade.  If a student misses more than 3 entire classes per semester, the student may be dropped from the course.
