WHAT IS ADVANCED PLACEMENT?
Advanced Placement, a program administered by the College Board, is nationally recognized as the gold standard of rigorous high school curriculum. All AP courses are rigorous, college-level courses developed by content-area experts. Students take an end-of-the year examination and depending on their scores can potentially earn college credit.
According to research done by Clifford Adelman at the U.S. Department of Education, “the rigor of a student’s high school curriculum is the single best predictor of success in college. “ Challenging AP curriculum will not only ensure that students are prepared for college, but AP courses also give students an opportunity to earn college credit while still in high school. In Arkansas, AP exams are free to students who are enrolled in the course and passing at the time of the exam, so any potential college credit is free to students.In addition, AP courses help students to demonstrate rigor on their transcript when applying for college.
