Advanced Placement



Are you ready for a unique learning experience that will help you succeed in college? Each year, students around the world who want to achieve at the highest level become AP® students. Through AP college-level courses and exams, you can earn college credit and advanced placement, stand out in the college admission process, and be exposed to more rigorous curriculum. In classrooms around the country, AP teachers are preparing students for tomorrow by teaching them how to think and learn today. AP students learn to construct solid arguments, test theories, and see many sides of an issue — the kind of thinking that solves tough problems both in and outside the classroom, in college and beyond. AP courses on a student transcript tell post-secondary schools that they’re challenging themselves and preparing for the rigor that they will encounter in college. These students are going to be the most successful. Below, you will find a calendar of informational meetings for students regarding individual AP and Honors courses, recommended pre-requisites for these courses, and AP/Honors contracts.
