The College Board’s Advanced Placement Program (AP) enables students to pursue college-level studies while still in high school.  Based on their performance on rigorous AP examinations, students can earn credit, advanced placement, or both for college.  Students are strongly encouraged to take the Advanced Placement exams.  Colleges look favorably at transcripts that have AP courses.  A Department of Education study reports that participation in AP courses is one of the strongest predictors of college success.  AP Courses are open to any student who wishes to enroll.

NOTE:  Each AP course requires a minimum of 1-2 hours of homework each night.  Plan accordingly.
