AP Courses & Exams

 WHAT IS AP?
The College Board’s Advanced Placement Program® (AP®) enables willing
and academically prepared students to pursue college-level studies — with the
opportunity to earn college credit, advanced placement or both — while still in
high school. AP Exams are given each year in May. A score of 3 or higher on an
AP Exam can typically earn students college credit and/or placement into
advanced courses in college.
