What is AP?

The AP (Advanced Placement) Program gives students the chance to tackle college-level work while they're still in high school and earn college credit and placement. 

Nearly all colleges and universities in the United States grant credit and placement for qualifying AP scores.

Research consistently shows that AP students are better prepared for college than students who don’t take AP. They’re more likely to enroll and stay in college, do well in their classes, and graduate in four years. 

Visit the College Board AP website to learn more about the program.
