advanced placement (Ap) information

Advanced Placement (AP) courses give students an opportunity to take rigorous courses during high school and possibly earn college credits. AP course grades receive extra weighting in GPA calculations and colleges and universities consider AP course experience in making college admission decisions. Students who take AP courses in high school are much more likely than their peers to complete a college degree on time. Most colleges and universities nationwide offer college credit, advanced placement, or both for qualifying AP Exam scores. This can mean being able to skip introductory courses or completing graduation requirements early. The course content and testing is coordinated by the College Board.
