AP (Advanced Placement) courses are college level classes offered to qualified students. Eligibility for AP classes is based upon previous grades, standardized test scores and teacher recommendation (see course descriptions for specific requirements). AP courses are weighted an additional 1.0 point in the student’s high school grade point average. In May, national AP exams are given and colleges may grant college credit for these classes based on the student’s score. It is required that AP students take the AP exam in order to have the AP designation and added GPA weight listed on their transcript. Parents are responsible for paying the AP exam fee for each course.
* AP Course offerings vary from year to year based upon student interest and faculty availability.
