What is Advanced Placement?

Advanced Placement (AP) courses offer university-level content to students in secondary school. Students in AP and pre-AP programmes study topics in greater depth, providing an opportunity for enhanced learning.

The rich course material, classroom discussion and unique assignments typical of AP courses help to develop the knowledge and the critical thinking skills in students that are university bound.

AP is recognized by post-secondary institutions in more than 30 countries worldwide, including 90% of north American colleges and universities.

What is Pre-Advanced Placement?

Pre-AP is an advanced series of courses for students to help begin preparing for university and is designated to be a rigorous preparation for AP courses in Grade 12.

The courses are intended to be challenging, but the benefits to students are well worth the extra work.
