• Advanced Placement Courses

    Participation in the College Board's Advanced Placement Program enables students to pursue college-level studies while still in high school. AP teachers participate in AP workshops where they receive intensive training on the content and methods of teaching AP courses. AP exams administered each May give students the opportunity to earn college credit. Because of the high standards of AP over 90% of the nation's colleges and universities have an AP policy granting students credit, placement, or both for qualifying AP exam grades. The college policy determines the exam grades that qualify. AP not only gives students the opportunity to earn college credits but AP's rigor also prepares students to succeed in college. These courses involve much more time due to the difficult coursework. Students must carefully decide if they will be able to meet the expectations of the class.

    Students may select from AP courses in: Biology, Calculus, Chemistry, English Literature, Government, Statistics and United States History, Computer Programming and Physics.
