Advanced Placement

College‐level or Advanced Placement (AP) courses can lead to college credit and are a popular advanced-level option in the Upper School for many 11th and 12th grade courses. AP classes follow a curriculum designated by the College Board and culminate in a standardized, nation‐wide AP exam in each offered discipline.

In a typical year, about half of our seniors and one third of the juniors take at least one examination administered by the College Board. Students who score well on the AP exams may earn enough AP credit to achieve sophomore status at some colleges and universities.
