Advanced Placement Assessments

Advanced Placement courses are college-level courses offered by trained high school teachers in the regular high school setting. In 2008-09, over one-third of the students in Georgia public high schools were enrolled in AP courses. AP courses guarantee rigor in our classrooms. The high school teachers who offer AP courses are trained by The College Board to offer the course at a college-level and have a syllabus approved by The College Board. AP courses are challenging and require significant study time on a daily basis. Assessments in these classes require sophisticated critical thinking skills. In May of each year, AP students take the AP exam(s). Students who score at the 3, 4 or 5 level may be able to earn college credit for these courses taken in the high school. Policies for credit differ from college to college, so take care to check college admissions and credit policies.

There are currently more than 30 AP courses that high schools in the US may choose to offer. Not all courses are offered in each high school. Check with your counseling department to learn which of these courses are offered in your high school.
