Advanced Placement (AP) Courses give students the opportunity to earn credit or advanced standing at most of the nation's colleges and universities. AP Courses are more challenging and stimulating than regular high school classes. AP courses explore subjects in greater depth, give greater opportunity for individual accomplishment, take more time, and require more work.

To earn AP credit, a student must take the AP exam at the end of the spring semester. Registration for exams begins early second semester. A score of 3, 4, or 5 can qualify a student for college credit. High school credit is awarded in any case, based on the semester course grade (note: a grade of "F" will receive no credit). Students are encouraged to check with each institution they are interested in attending to find out specific information about the acceptance of AP credit.
