General Information about the Advanced Placement program

The AP program is a challenging academic program designed to provide motivated high school students with college-level academic courses that prepares students for selective universities and colleges. AP is a rigorous program dedicated to educational excellence with a long-standing history in the United States. Students sit for an examination at the end of the AP course. AP tests are scored on a scale of 1—5. Many colleges offer college credit for AP examinations with scores of 3, 4 or 5. Universities and colleges list the credit policy on their websites.

College Board moved to an online platform last school year called AP Classroom. This platform provides online resources to students in the form of progress checks, a question bank of previously released questions, and links to additional resources for more in-depth investigation including videos for each unit topic that are being released throughout the school year.  All AP Teachers are enrolled in AP Classroom and have given their students a join code for their course so they can access the materials and be registered for their exams in May. It is required that students be enrolled in the AP Classroom sections for their respective courses, even if they opt out of the exam.
