AP Courses

Helping Students Get Ahead in College

No matter our students future plans, we strive to ensure that they'll be ready. 

While Advanced Placement (AP) courses help our students learn the challenges and expectations of college-level coursework, it also sets an impression with admissions officers when they spot "AP" on transcripts.  It's a sign of academic discipline when it comes to the rigors of high school classes.

According to The College Board: "By taking an AP course and scoring successfully on the related AP Exam, you can save on college expenses: most colleges and universities nationwide offer college credit, advanced placement, or both, for qualifying AP Exam scores. These credits can allow students to save college tuition, study abroad, or secure a second major. AP can transform what once seemed unattainable into something within reach."
