The Pre-AP/AP Program is offered to further enhance students’ educational opportunities and to provide students a variety of challenging course options that will prepare them for college and other post-secondary endeavors.
Founded by the College Board, (AP) is a collaborative effort of school districts, high schools, and colleges & universities. Courses are designed to include the curriculum and types of assignments that are expected in corresponding college courses. At the conclusion of each AP course, a standardized exam is administered to students. Many colleges and universities award college credit to students based on their exam performance.
