AP Courses

What are Advanced Placement (AP) courses?

Advanced Placement (AP) courses are rigorous, college-level courses and assessments offered in US high schools. Administered by the College Board, they have now replaced the SAT Subject Tests for college applications. Doing well on AP courses can translate to college credit in US and Canadian universities.

AP courses are structured to be self-study material with a standardized exam offered once a year. As such many high schools might not offer the correct guidance or teaching for AP courses.

TYPICAL AGE RANGE

AP courses are offered all throughout high school and as such can be taken by students aged 15-18 through self-study or proper classes.

ENROLLMENT OPTIONS

The AP courses can be taken as a part-time option along with other subjects. Students can also take a combination of levels at CGA.
