What is AP?
Advanced Placement is a nationally recognized program that provides high school students with college-level coursework and the chance to earn college credit by achieving success on AP exams. Our AP courses span a wide range of subjects, from mathematics and science to humanities and the arts, allowing students to explore their passions and expand their horizons. This program offers high school students the opportunity to engage in college-level coursework and exams. These programs cover a wide range of subjects and key areas, and the focus can vary by subject.
