AP/Pre-AP Classes


    Advanced Placement courses are college-level courses that follow the College Board Advanced Placement guidelines. These courses involve an extensive accumulation of knowledge in the field that is tested on the AP exam. Colleges and universities have the option of accepting the AP results for college credit. While there is a fee to take the exam, financial aid is available. Gifted and talented students needs are served through Pre-AP and Advanced Placement programs. Students and parents are required to complete and submit an AP contract that outlines in detail the requirements of the class.

    Courses designated as “AP” are college-level courses and students should expect course subject matter and workload at a college level. Students enrolled in AP courses are required to take the AP exam at the end of the year.




    A Pre-AP course curriculum is an enriched, accelerated program based on introducing and developing College Board strategies. Compared to regular classes, Pre-AP courses expect a greater retention and appreciation of prior knowledge, as well as a deeper understanding of the course topics.


    Pre-AP courses teach the skills necessary for success in AP courses and students should expect extensive reading and writing assignments. Enrolling in a Pre-AP course is highly recommended for students who wish to take Advanced Placement courses in the future.
