Advanced Placement (AP)

 

Are you ready for a unique learning experience that will help you succeed in college? Through AP’s college-level courses and exams, you can earn college credit and advanced placement, stand out in the admissions process, and learn from some of the most skilled, dedicated, and inspiring teachers in the world.

 

 

 

 

A Different Kind of Class

From the moment you enter an AP classroom, you’ll notice the difference—in the teacher’s approach to the subject, in the attitude of your classmates, in the way you start to think. In AP classrooms, the focus is not on memorizing facts and figures. Instead you’ll engage in intense discussions, solve problems collaboratively, and learn to write clearly and persuasively.

Prepare to Succeed in College
AP courses can help you acquire the skills and habits you’ll need to be successful in college. You’ll improve your writing skills, sharpen your problem-solving abilities, and develop time-management skills, discipline, and study habits.

Earn College Credit and Placement
Most four-year colleges in the United States and colleges in more than 60 other countries may award students credit, advanced placement, or both, on the basis of AP Exam scores. By entering college with AP credits, you’ll have the time to move into upper-level courses, pursue a double-major, or study abroad.

How Do I Enroll?
Once you've decided to take the AP challenge it’s easy to enroll. Talk to an AP teacher or the AP Coordinator at your school about the course you want to take. Discuss the course’s workload and any preparation you might need.

 

AP INTERNATIONAL DIPLOMA

(adapted from the collegeboard)

The Advanced Placement International Diploma (APID) is a globally recognized certificate for students with an international outlook. The APID challenges a student to display exceptional achievement on AP Exams across several disciplines.

Universities worldwide recognize the APID in admissions. Students may search AP International
Recognition for universities outside the U.S. that acknowledge AP achievement.

The APID is available to students attending secondary schools outside the United States, and to U.S. resident students applying to universities outside the country. The APID is not a substitute for a high school diploma, but rather provides additional certification of outstanding academic excellence.

To earn an APID, a student attending school within the United States must indicate on at least one AP Exam answer sheet that the results should be sent to a university outside the United States. Please see AP International Recognition for a list of universities outside the U.S. that use AP in admissions.
