Advanced Academics courses are rigorous and designed to challenge students beyond grade-level academic courses and prepare them for success in future advanced coursework.
Advanced Placement: What is it?
- AP courses expose students to college rigor, and allow them to earn college credit by passing an AP exam (score 3 or higher).
- Students sign up for courses in the Spring.
- Some courses may require summer reading.
- Students register for AP exams in the Fall. Students take the AP exams in early May, and get the scores in early July.
*Advanced courses in lower grade levels expose students to the skills necessary for AP courses; students do not earn college credit for advanced courses.
