Advanced Placement Scholars

Advanced Placement Logo
The Advanced Placement Scholars Specialty Program (AP Scholars) is aligned with the Advanced Placement Program from The College Board. The program will provide students with instruction in pre-college and college level courses. Courses will provide students with a collegial learning environment and rigorous academic focus with emphasis on content knowledge, critical thinking and analytical reasoning skills, as well as disciplined study habits. Students will be prepared for success on AP exams. 

Special activities such as college nights, informational forums and content related activities will be offered. Students will complete a research project in the senior year in an area of academic concentration such as English, mathematics, science, or history and social sciences.

To participate in the program, students must enroll in two or more pre-AP or AP courses each year.  Students are required to complete at least five AP courses before graduation, complete 60 hours of community service, and a senior research project.
