The Advanced Placement® Program is a cooperative educational endeavor between secondary schools and colleges/universities to provide college-level learning experiences to students who have not yet graduated from high school. Almost all colleges and universities consider AP exam results for both admissions and college credit.

AP® introduces high school students to academically challenging material, and then gives them an opportunity to show what they have learned by taking AP® exams, considered the national standard in each content area. Recent research has shown that success on these exams, demonstrated by a score of 3, 4, or 5, is a strong predictor of higher college grade-point averages as well overall success in college. And participation in AP® classes, even without that level of attainment on the exams, was correlated with outstanding results on the Third International Math and Science Study (TIMSS).

College Board Requirements

Any school wishing to use the AP® designation for transcripts, course listings, or other publications must complete a new College Board Audit for each AP® course. Our AP® Teacher Training Institute (APTTI) will prepare every participant to successfully complete the course audit.
