AP or ADVANCED PLACEMENT CLASSES
Detailed in this section are course descriptions of Advanced Placement (AP) courses offered at Charlottesville High School. AP courses are courses that that follow the College Board's curriculum. AP classes are high school level “honors” classes where students can earn college credit based on scores that they receive on end-of-year AP tests. All AP tests are free of charge. Like honors classes, AP classes are rigorous and require a significant time commitment outside of class. It is recommend that 11th grade students take no more than four AP classes and that 12th grade students take no more than five AP classes within one year. AP courses are NOT college courses; however, the rigorous nature of these could result in students receiving college credit from some colleges and universities for high scores on Advanced Placement tests.
