The Advanced Placement (AP) courses offer the opportunity to earn college course credit for those students who demonstrate ability, interest, and motivation to prepare and take an Advanced Placement exam. Grades earned for AP courses are weighted using the following grade point scale: A = 5, B = 4, C = 3, D = 1, F = 0.

To enroll in an AP course, students must plan to register to take the AP exam. Parents, students, and teachers will be asked to sign a contract that clarifies class expectations.
