Advanced Placement

Advanced Placement logoAdvanced Placement
Advanced Placement classes and exams allow students to demonstrate their passion and ability in various subjects. Advanced Placement courses require more commitment and dedication than regular courses and earning a 5 (the highest score on an exam) usually requires additional preparation during summers, breaks and holidays above and beyond what teachers assign. Building a solid base in a variety of subjects during elementary and middle school makes it easier to earn 5's on exams later. (NOTE: The majority of students admitted to Stanford, Yale, Harvard, UCLA, Berkeley and other highly-selective colleges will have not only taken a large number of AP courses, but will also have scored 4's and 5's on most of their exams.)

AP Scholar Awards

Students can receive national CollegeBoard recognition for taking and passing certain numbers of AP exams. For more information on the awards and their requirements, click here.

NOTE: Not all AP courses are available at all high schools. Please check with the high school your child attends or will attend to see what AP courses they offer. Students may take an AP exam even though they are not enrolled in the AP course though course enrollment is recommended. Since Cajon and Arroyo Valley are IB schools, they do not offer AP courses but do offer comparable exams associated with each IB course.  IB students may still take AP exams.
