    About the Advanced Placement (AP) Program

    The Advanced Placement (AP) is a program created by the College Board and offers college-level curriculum and examinations to high school students. American colleges often grant placement and course credit to students who obtain acceptable scores 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 students with straight A's.  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 countless pathways students can pursue as long as they explore the options. By giving you the opportunity to investigate what interests you the most, AP courses help you find your unique direction.

    Fullerton Union High School offers 20 AP courses, and each one can help you get working towards a wide variety of college majors and careers.
