Advanced Placement

  • The Advanced Placement Program (AP) offers students the opportunity to participate in
    rigorous and demanding coursework that may allow the students to earn college credit. The
    students may earn this college credit or advanced standing with a sufficient score on the AP
    exam. AP courses have exceptionally high standards (as outlined by the College Board),
    require more in-depth study by students, and carry a weighted grade. These courses place a
    high degree of emphasis on the student's own self-motivation, study skills, and the ability to self
    direct his/her own learning. Homework is generally assigned daily, and is more extensive than
    is assigned in Honors level courses. AP exams are given in May and contain multiple choice
    and free-response questions. The exams include problem solving and the use of other higher
    level thinking skills. Students enrolled in AP courses are expected to take the AP exams which
    carry an approximate cost of $89 per exam (price may vary). The AP exam fee for qualifying
    students may be reduced by the state of Ohio based on financial need. Students enrolling in
    AP classes should secure a teacher recommendation and demonstrate a high level of
    mastery in the specific subject area.
