Advanced Placement Courses

Advanced Placement (AP) courses emulate college-level work in a  high school setting. Students in AP classes pursue an in-depth study of subjects they find particularly fascinating. These challenging stand alone courses  require dedication and time. Advanced Placement students are required to take  their respective exam(s) in May.  Students who pass the AP exam with a  qualifying score of 3, 4, or 5 may earn college credit (see university websites  for specific rules and regulations regarding college credit).
