Advanced Placement (AP) is a rigorous academic program built on the commitment, passion, and hard work of students and educators from both secondary schools and higher education. Since 1955, the AP Program has enabled millions of students to take college-level courses and exams, and to earn college credit or placement while still in high school.
In AP classrooms, the focus is not on memorizing facts and figures. Instead students engage in intense discussions, solve problems collaboratively, and learn to write clearly and persuasively. AP courses can help students acquire the skills and habits they will need to be successful in college. They will improve their writing skills, sharpen their problem-solving abilities, and develop time management skills, discipline, and study habits.
