Advanced Placement (AP) courses are college-level freshmen/sophomore courses taught by trained high school instructors. As such, they offer greater depth and detail in the study of the subject matter and require higher expectations with regard to writing, reading, and thinking skills.
The time and effort required for a college course is expected if a student is to be successful in an AP course. Students can expect additional homework during the week, over weekends, and during longer vacations to meet the expectations of these courses designed to earn college credit. All students completing Advanced Placement courses are expected to take the corresponding Advanced Placement exam in May. Successful performance on the AP exam can earn the student college credit or placement while still in high school.
