General Advanced Placement Information

Advanced Placement (AP) is a challenging college preparatory curriculum emphasizing academic rigor. It is intended to prepare students to be successful upon entry into a selective four year post-secondary institution and offers the potential for earning college credit while in high school. The Advanced Placement Academy is an interdisciplinary program focusing on Liberal Arts through Pre-AP and AP courses.

The purpose of AP examinations is to allow students to demonstrate college-level achievement in certain subjects. Students who do well on the AP exams may receive college credit or advanced standing at a college or university. The AP exams are typically taken by juniors and seniors enrolled in Advanced Placement courses, although freshman and sophomores and students not enrolled in AP courses may also take the exams. The test combines multiple choice, essay, problem-solving and other questions. Students receive a score on a scale of 1 to 5, with a 3 usually considered an indicator of college-level achievement. The exams are given during the month of May.

AP students have the opportunity to earn prestigious designations, including state and/or national AP Scholar with Honor, AP Scholar with Distinction, and AP International Scholar.
