“Advanced Placement” (AP) is a program of college-level courses offered at many high schools. Courses are available in many subject areas, including English, history, humanities, languages, math, psychology and science.
It’s time to start thinking about which AP courses grab your interest, and how they might start you on the right path to college and career success. This program prepares students for the AP Examinations that are administered each year in May and represent the culmination of college-level work in a given discipline in a secondary school setting. Rigorously developed by committees of college and AP high school faculty, the AP Exams test students’ ability to perform at a college level.
