AP - Advanced Placement

Advanced Placement

Advanced Placement (AP) students experience an academically enriched program through post-secondary-level courses offered in high school. AP programming allows those with a passion in a particular discipline (such as biology) to take one specific course or to explore a career pathway in science, taking more courses (such as physics).

Based on their performance on AP examinations, students can earn post-secondary credits for university and college courses. Students' achievements in AP courses are celebrated with course credits, College Board awards, and scholarships from most universities - including the University of Alberta.
