Advanced Placement Courses

College-level courses for ambitious high school students aiming to attend US universities.

What are Advanced Placement 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. Taking online AP courses with a good teacher will help students with their schoolwork while ensuring they score well in the exams. A good score demonstrates a student’s ability to study a rigorous curriculum and also ensures college credit.

CGA is a College Board registered school approved to deliver the AP curriculum (school code 703001). We offer part-time intensive online AP classes on weekends taught by our world-class teachers.
