Question and Answers for AP Advanced Placement


I've heard of Advanced Placement (AP) classes, what are they and what do they offer?

The Advanced Placement Program enables students to pursue college-level studies while still in high school. Students can choose from 37 college-level courses across 22 subject areas, ranging from chemistry to Italian language and culture. Because AP is based on individual courses, students can pick and choose one, two or more courses based on their interest or aptitude. One of AP's biggest benefits is the recognition given by universities and colleges, so a student can start university with first-year course credits.

Hear what teachers, students and parents have to say about Advanced Placement Programs in these testimonials and articles.
