What is AP?

  • AP stands for advanced placement and is a course offered in high school that students can earn college credit for.
  • Students take the yearlong course then take the AP test in May. If they receive a passing score (typically a 3 or better) they may earn college credit for that course. Most colleges use this credit to test out of pre requisites, or to give the credit for general courses.
  • AP Courses: Calculus AB, Calculus BC, Statistics, Biology, Chemistry, Physics 1, Physics C, Environmental Science, English Language, English Literature, US History, European History, World History, Human Geography, Psychology, Microeconomics, Macroeconomics, French, Spanish, and Studio Art-Drawing Portfolio.

Why take AP?

  • Save money in college: If a student can come in with college credit already earned, they will have fewer classes to pay for.
  • College readiness: studies have shown that AP students have better four-year graduation rates than those who did not take AP.
  • Taking AP increases eligibility for scholarships and makes candidates more attractive to colleges. 85 percent of selective colleges and universities report that a student's AP experience favorably impacts admissions decisions.

The Fee for each exam is $94.00.
