What is AP?

The College Board's Advanced Placement (AP) program offers college level curricula to high school students.  By scoring successfully on an AP exam, students may receive college credit and save on college expenses. To explore the benefits of AP courses, please visit the CollegeBoard website.


Advanced Placement: The Basics

Advanced Placement (AP) courses are college-level courses offered in high school.

Courses reflect what is taught in top introductory college courses.

Students take AP Exams at the end of the course, measuring their master of college-level work.

A score of 3 or higher on an AP Exam can typically earn students college credit and/or placement into advanced courses in college.
