What is the Advanced Placement Program?

Advanced Placement is a College Board program recognized internationally and designed to provide students with college-level experience while in high school. The academic standards and guidelines that make up the framework for AP courses and exams are developed and maintained by committees of university professors and highly experienced AP teachers. Students in these courses can take an end of year examination to document their level of content and skill mastery for future study in college.
