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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Should I take Computer Science A or Computer Science Principles?

From the College Board site*:
“The AP Computer Science A course and exam focus on computing skills related to programming in Java. Students cultivate their understanding of coding through analyzing, writing, and testing code as they explore concepts like modularity, variables, and control structures.*

The AP Computer Science Principles course complements AP Computer Science A and focuses on the broader aspects of computing. Students learn to design and evaluate solutions and to apply computer science to solve problems through the development of algorithms and programs. They incorporate abstraction into programs and use data to discover new knowledge. Students also explain how computing innovations and computing systems including the internet work, explore the potential impacts of these innovations, and contribute to a computing culture that is collaborative and ethical.

Additionally, the AP Exams for the two courses have different formats. AP Computer Science A has one end-of-course exam with multiple-choice and free-response questions. AP Computer Science Principles includes the Create performance task, which is completed during the course, and an end-of-course multiple-choice exam.”
