Advanced Placement (AP) Courses:
These courses are taught on a college-level (think of them as a freshman or sophomore level survey class) and include a higher level of critical thinking and rigor as compared to the Pre-AP or regular level classes. Reading and studying for several hours each week is a must for these courses. The purpose of an AP course is to prepare students for an AP exam in May. If students do well on the AP exam, then they can receive college credit (semester hours) at most colleges and universities in the nation. For more information on how many credit hours are awarded by specific higher institutions, please visit the College Board AP Credit Policy Search webpage.
