Advanced Placement® courses are college-level courses offered in upper school. They can give students a taste of what college is like and can help them stand out on their college applications. In addition to this, scoring well on the AP Exam can get students college credit, placement out of introductory courses or both, potentially saving thousands of dollars in tuition and fees.
At EA, we are committed to each student’s success. We believe that access to rigorous coursework like the AP Advantage plays a key role in that success.
Students take AP Exams at the end of the course, measuring their mastery of college-level work. Enrollment in an Advanced Placement course is by teacher recommendation and departmental invitation. All students who elect to take an Advanced Placement course are required to take the AP Exam in May.
