About Us

The Advanced Placement® Program (AP) provides opportunities for willing and academically prepared students to pursue college-level coursework while still in high school. AP courses are developed by the College Board’s AP Program. Corresponding exams at the end of the year allow students to earn college credit or advanced placement at colleges and universities around the world.

There are 38 AP courses in seven subject areas. Visit AP Central to learn more about the courses offered.
