Our Advanced Placement program offers college-level classes and exams to our grade 12 students. The goal is to connect students to college success by taking college classes while still in high school. The AP program was developed by the College Board, in the United States, to help high school students prepare for college by taking advanced courses, with no set program of courses. Students could take just one or even a dozen AP classes, depending on their school, schedule, and goals. The course work in a given subject is generally equivalent to a first-year college course. As a result, a student who achieves a 4 or 5 is usually permitted to skip the corresponding course as a freshman in college.
