Advanced Placement Courses (AP)

Contact: , Guidance Counselor | Room  | Ext.

Advanced Placement (AP) courses are designed by the College Board. As an AP student, you are demonstrating to yourself and others that you are up to the challenge of rigorous, college-level course work. In May, students take a test for each AP course in which they are enrolled; students who achieve a certain score may, if their college accepts the AP credit, receive college credit. Students receive six (6) quality points on the standardized transcript, which means an A = 6.0; B = 5.0; C = 4.0.

Students who do well in AP classes increase their chances of college success and the College Board recognizes the following AP Scholar Designations and notifies both the high school and college the student attends of these distinctions: AP Scholar, AP Scholar with Honor, AP Scholar with Distinction, AP State Scholar, and National AP Scholar.

Each of our AP teachers completed a review of their course by the College Board called the AP Audit. The authorization of an individual teacher’s course is an official recognition by the College Board that the teacher’s course meets or exceeds the expectations colleges and universities have for the designated AP subject. This authorization grants the teacher’s school permission to use the “AP” designation on students’ transcripts in association with the authorized course.

You can find more information on an AP course of study or specific AP courses offered in the High School Registration Guide. If you have questions, contact Elizabeth Tricomi by e-mail at: or by phone at 919.245.4000 ext. ..
