  • Explanation of the AP program

AP (Advanced Placement) courses allow high school students to take and get credit for college-level classes. To get credit for a course, a student must pass the AP test. Unfortunately, not all colleges and universities in the US accept AP tests, and some may have their own independent exams. The AP is prepared by Collegeboard and their buddies at ETS (I think), also the writers of such tests as the SAT and PSAT. Courses cover a wide range of subjects, including Spanish, Calculus, English, Chemistry, and History.
