 Advanced Placement (AP) Courses

Definition of Advanced Placement

The placement of a student in a high school course that offers college credit if successfully completed. Colleges and universities often grant placement and course credit to students who obtain high scores on the examinations. The AP curriculum for each of the various subjects is created for the College Board by a panel of experts and college-level educators in that field of study. For a high school course to have the AP designation, the course must be audited by the College Board to ascertain that it satisfies the AP curriculum.
