Pre-Advanced Placement Courses
The Advanced Placement Program, administered by The College Board, allows students to participate in college-level courses while in high school and possibly earn college credit while still in high school. Pre-AP coursework at the junior high school level prepares students for these advanced courses. Pre-AP classes are more challenging and stimulating, therefore they take more time and require more work. Pre-AP classes require energetic, involved, and motivated students. Pre-AP courses must be started at the beginning of a full-year course and may not be entered the second semester of a full year course.
