Advanced Placement

  • The Advanced Placement (AP) program is a set of courses designed to offer college-level material to high school students. Most courses are designed to prepare the student for an end-of-year exam offered by College Board. Successful completion of a College Board AP exam can result in college credit being awarded.
    Unlike the International Baccalaureate (IB) program, each course in the AP program is offered independent of all other AP courses; there is no specific diploma program associated with these courses. Please visit the College Board AP website for course descriptions, exam practice questions, and much more detailed information about the AP program.

    • Art history

    • Calculus AB
    • Calculus AC
