Advanced Placement

The Advanced Placement Program (AP) is a cooperative agreement between participating secondary schools and post-secondary institutions. AP courses permit you to undertake additional academic content as identified by postsecondary institutions.

Admission Requirements

The College Board’s philosophy is, “All students who are willing and academically prepared to accept the challenge of a rigorous academic curriculum should be considered for admission to AP courses. The College Board encourages the elimination of barriers that restrict access to AP courses for students from ethnic, racial and socioeconomic groups that have been traditionally underrepresented in the AP Program. Schools should make every effort to ensure that their AP classes reflect the diversity of their student population.”


Beginning in 2021-2022, there will be no admission requirements into AP Programs. 

Schools will not ask for Report Cards, IEPs, interviews, portfolios, or reference letters for admission.
