About the AP Program and Exam

The Advanced Placement Program, in conjunction with the Educational Testing Service of Princeton, New Jersey, is designed to offer very capable students an opportunity to earn college credit while in high school. College credit is dependent upon the student’s performance on the Advanced Placement Examination and on the college’s/university’s credit policy. Students in selected advanced courses in English, Mathematics, Science, Art and Social Studies, in addition to qualified students from Regents courses may avail themselves of this program.

Advanced students are self-motivated, self-disciplined, independent learners who wish to challenge themselves beyond the Regents level course load. Advanced students are required to demonstrate a higher level of critical and analytical thinking and writing. The writing and analytical skills of advanced students should show evidence of a high-level of sophistication and mastery. Summer work is required for some high school advanced classes.
