The Advanced Placement program is a part of a national
program administered by the Educational Testing Service for the College
Board. Courses designated as “Advanced
Placement” (AP) are college level courses that provide challenging course work
comparable to a college class. (This is
significantly different from an Honors class, which is considered to be a
college prep course.)
The content of AP courses is extremely rigorous and
offers students the opportunity to utilize their critical thinking skills and
their ability to analyze information.
The workload of an AP course is also heavier than a comprehensive high
school course; therefore it is recommended that a student enroll in no more
than three AP classes per school year.
If a student does enroll in three or more, the AP staff and guidance
counselor must be consulted.
AP courses offer students the opportunity of
earning not only high school credit, but depending on their national AP exam
score and college policies, college credit and/or advanced standing in most
colleges and universities in the United States.
To check college policies on AP credit go to www.collegeboard.com/ap/creditpolicy.
