AVRCE Virtual Advanced placement


The Virtual Advanced Placement (AP) Program offered by the AVRCE is an effort to bring advanced level courses to schools that may not have the number of students to warrant such a class or where timetable conflicts prevent students from taking a particular class. Each course follows the College Board AP Curriculum guidelines and is a unique combination of virtual video conferencing and on-site activities that includes labs, field trips and special presentations.
