About the Advanced Placement (AP) Program
The Advanced Placement (AP) is a program created by the College Board offering college-level curriculum and examinations to high school students. American colleges often grant placement and course credit to students who obtain high scores above a certain number on the examinations. The AP curriculum for the various subjects is created for the College Board by a panel of experts and college-level educators in each subject.
Who may take AP classes?
AP is open to any student from any background, not just straight A students, nerds, or geeks, but it may not be right for everyone. AP is the right choice for you if you have a healthy curiosity about a subject and are willing to work hard. If you enjoy an academic challenge and want to learn alongside classmates who are enthusiastic about learning and growing, consider signing up.
AP and Your Future
Your AP exam grades, if sufficiently high, could earn you credit, placement, or both at thousands of colleges and universities in the United States and around the world, enabling you to move into upper level courses in your field of interest, or pursue a double major, or gain time to study or travel abroad.
There are a million paths you can take between now and your future. By giving you the opportunity to explore what interests you the most, AP courses help you find your unique direction.
