What is AP®?

New Resources and Supports Coming in 2019

Benefits of AP

The Advanced Placement Program (AP) enables willing and academically prepared students to pursue college-level studies while still in high school. The program consists of college-level courses developed by the AP Program that high schools can choose to offer, and corresponding exams that are administered once a year. 

Based on best practices in schools and created in collaboration with educators from across the country, these resources will include an AP question bank, personal progress checks, performance dashboards, and improved tools for exam ordering and administration. 

AP students learn essential time management and study skills needed for college and career success. They dig deeper into subjects that interest them and learn to tap their creativity and their problem-solving skills to address course challenges. Research shows that students who receive a score of 3 or higher on AP Exams typically experience greater academic success in college and have higher graduation rates than their non-AP peers.
