Advanced Placement (AP) Courses 

AP courses are rigorous academic programs available to students who demonstrate interest in the opportunity to pursue challenging college-level classes. The College Board’s AP courses are offered in a wide variety of subjects that students can take while still in high school. They offer demanding course work through a college course experience while in high school. Through AP's college-level courses and exams, students can earn college credit and/or advanced placement while standing out in the college admission process. College Board offers a series of examinations in May of each year to students who have taken Advanced Placement course work.
