What are AP courses?
The Advanced Placement Program was established in 1955. It is an initiative offered by the College Board that allows students the opportunity to experience first-year college-level courses while still in high school.
Should students successfully complete the course and pass the subject AP Exam at the end of the year, they may earn college credit and placement (always check with individual colleges and universities as to their requirements). There are courses available in the humanities, science, mathematics, social sciences, and the arts.
