Advanced Placement (AP®) Program Enrollment Guidelines
College Board AP Equity and Access Policy
The College Board strongly encourages educators to make equitable access a guiding principle for their AP programs by giving all willing and academically prepared students the opportunity to participate in AP.
The AP Program offers college level instruction to the academically successful high school student with the option of taking an AdvancedPlacement examination and possibly qualifying for college credit. AP students are expected to work at an accelerated pace and to engage in outside reading and independent learning.
Advanced Placement courses including AP and Honors courses are open to all students with the prerequisite coursework who wish to take on the additional challenge of advanced academics. Students who choose to enroll, however, should be prepared for the increased academic challenge of these courses.
The purpose of establishing enrollment guidelines is to make sure that all willing, motivated and academically prepared students are strategically placed into AP classes. This document summarizes the suggested timeline and artifacts that can be used to gauge student motivation and academic readiness.
All students who are enrolled in any AP courses are REQUIRED to complete AP summer assignments posted on our school website and turn in AP Course Student Contract provided below on the first day of school.
