ADVANCED PLACEMENT PROGRAM

ADVANCED PLACEMENT PROGRAM

Advanced Placement (AP) is a program of college-level courses and exams that gives high school students the opportunity to receive advanced placement and/or credit in college. Most of the Nation’s colleges and universities have an AP policy granting incoming students credit, placement, or both for qualifying AP exams.

 The skills learned from the sequence of research courses students are required to take over four years will be used to create a final paper known as a capstone project. The English Language Arts Department will oversee and guide the capstone project. A major objective of this project is to produce an abstract that will be included in the college application package for graduating seniors.
